Maths

Children throughout KS1 and KS2 have a daily maths lesson.

Our aim is to ensure that children become mathematicians rather than just ‘do’ maths.

It is important that children develop mathematical skills through lots of practical experience, especially when they are younger.

As children learn mathematical skills these are further developed by ensuring that children can develop good mental calculation and problem solving approaches.

It is also important that children are given plenty of opportunities to apply these skills to a wide range of situations.

 

Years 1 through to 6 also take part in Fluency sessions which are short bursts of 15 minutes to ensure that previous learning is embedded in the working memory.
