How do we teach Mathematics?

In our teaching of mathematics, we ensure that the teaching and learning of maths is exciting and enjoyable, where children can develop confidence and a positive attitude towards this area of the curriculum. We strive to equip all our children with the skills and knowledge they need to use maths effectively and be able to live, work and succeed in a numerical world. We believe that maths should be fun and  relevant to real life situations, whenever possible. For this reason, we ensure maths is practical and set in meaningful contexts to promote its importance in everyday life. We teach children a range of strategies to solve different problems and equip them with knowledge and independence to choose the most appropriate method and equipment to solve the problem.
