Mathematics is a core subject in the National Curriculum.
It teaches children how to make sense of the world around them through developing their ability to calculate, reason and solve problems. It enables children to understand relationships and patterns in both number and space in their everyday lives. Where appropriate, links are made with other subject areas.
In all classes, children have a wide range of mathematical abilities. We recognise this fact and provide suitable learning opportunities for all children by matching the challenge of the task to the ability of the child.
In Early Years Foundation Stage, the children enjoy a rich mathematical environment both inside and outside the classroom, through play and formal learning. In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 our children have a daily maths lesson. In addition we do 'Morning Maths' at the start of each day.
ICT is used, where appropriate, to support children's learning.
