Mathematics provides more than opportunities to calculate, it enables information to be handled and communicated and problems to be solved. Mathematics is used in all aspects of everyday life, allowing us to make sense of the world around us. All children are encouraged to be able to explain their learning and builds strong number sense.
Furthermore children need to be confident and competent in their numeracy skills to be able to function responsibly in everyday life and contribute effectively to society.
