Children are taught Mathematics through a cross-curricular, practical and oral approach which gives them a sound structure in which they can develop an understanding of the processes involved and learn the basic skills.
Children are given a wide range of purposeful, practical and fun investigative experiences to practise and consolidate concepts and skills. Problem solving is an essential part of mathematics and children have opportunities to apply their problem solving skills in everyday situations.
The children have access to a wide range of mathematical equipment including Numicon which is a multi-sensory approach with problem solving, reasoning and conversation at its heart. It enables them to:
- develop fluency by using a visual, practical base to develop conceptual understanding and fluent recall.
- reason mathematically through the use of concrete objects and spoken language to explain and justify.
- develop into confident problem solvers.
Children are encouraged to understand and use mathematical language through work on Number, Calculation, Time, Measuring, Weighing, Capacity, Money, Shape and Data Handling.
Children record their learning in a wide variety of forms including written work, diagrams, photos of practical tasks and through Computing.
