The school policy is to develop mathematical skills and concepts, and to apply them practically and mentally through a programme of structured experiences.
Your child will experience a wide range of mathematical topics:
- Problem Solving and Enquiry.
- Number, Money and Measurement.
- Information Handling.
- Shape, Position and Movement.
It is in these topics and through these topics that the school will foster an enquiring attitude and engender an enjoyment of the subject. An integral part of the programme is the transference of skills into real-life situations and also integration of other curricular areas.
The use of the Interactive Smartboard resources ensures engagement and enthusiasm, leading to enjoyment and a better understanding of the key concepts and skills. Active learning at all stages extends Mathematics in realistic contexts.
The development of our pupils’ knowledge and understanding is further enhanced by integrating it, where appropriate, within other relevant areas of the curriculum.
