We believe that mathematics is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of future employment. Our high-quality mathematics curriculum provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
We are currently working with other schools in our cluster to further develop the way we approach the teaching of the four calculations, to ensure continuity and progression throughout the school. We are also working on developing reasoning skills, encouraging our children to probe deeper into a question and follow ideas through to a solution, even when it first appears tricky!
Next year, we will be linking with the NSPCC and taking part in their Number Day, using resources to challenge us in maths, whilst raising money for this important charity too.
