How we teach Maths
Mathematics lessons include daily practice in mental and oral arithmetic skills and comprehensive teaching and learning in number, shape, space, measures and data handling. Children are also encouraged to solve puzzles and problems. The New Mathematics Curriculum is delivered through year group long-term planning, which is published on our website. Lessons are planned using government approved materials and a wealth of resources, such as the ‘Abacus ’ mathematics programme, those from other commercial schemes and ideas from our own bank of resources. Teachers ensure that, where appropriate, maths is taught in a practical way and is applied to a real life context. Year groups are well equipped with resources to facilitate interactive teaching. All teaching and learning in maths is tailored to every child’s needs.
