In the new Curriculum for Excellence we will develop programmes of study that will enable us to provide opportunities for learning in the following areas:
- Number Processes
- Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division
- Fractions, Decimals & Percentages
- Measure (Length, Weight, Volume, Capacity)
- Data & Analysis Teachers will balance the teaching of these outcomes in their long term and daily plans.
A variety of resources and schemes are in use throughout the school; these include Heinemann Active Maths, TeeJay Maths and TENS Maths. The teaching model on which these courses are based is one where new ideas are introduced through the involvement of the teacher and children in practical activities and discussion. This is usually followed by further practical activities for the children to do by themselves. Written work involving the use of workbooks and exercise books is only attempted after sufficient practical work and discussion have taken place. A variety of ICT resources are used to support learning including computers and Ipads.
