Maths

We place a very high value on learning core number skills such as knowledge of place value and times-tables. These skills are applied in many different ways, including practical activities such as cooking and outdoor learning. Don’t be surprised to see our Year 1s and 2s outside jumping, running, drawing with chalk and smiling and laughing as they learn Maths!

Our fundamentals though, are to develop children who are fluent in mathematics and are who able to use their knowledge, skills and understanding to problem solve and reason mathematically.

For the teaching of mathematics, we group children by ability to enable us to offer challenge every single child to make the very best progress possible.
