Teaching of maths

We love maths! Our lesson approach in all year groups enables children to work independently and with a partner, to discuss the maths they are learning to solve problems and challenges.

Our pupils have access to a 'Maths Toolkit' containing a range of maths resources to support independent learning and a deeper understanding of the maths concepts involved. Children are also encouraged to use pictures, jottings and drawings to help them develop their mathematical thinking before moving on to more abstract presentations such as number sentences (for example, 6x5 or 56+234). Maths helps us in the everyday world but also allows us to describe, investigate, create, reason and explain.
