Mathematics is taught for 50 minutes to an hour daily, in each class, following the abacus and Lancashire suggested scheme of works.
In maths, we aim to provide children with the basic skills needed for adult life and for the world of work. They are encouraged to think logically and clearly, to estimate sensibly, to solve problems and to use their mental arithmetic skills ensuring that learning in mathematics is set in real-life contexts to inspire and enthuse the children.
We also aim to encourage an enjoyment of the subject and an awareness of the excitement that can be found as they investigate mathematics practically.
The framework for teaching Mathematics is based on the new National Curriculum (2014) and covers Number - Number and place value, Number - Addition and Subtraction, Number - Multiplication and Division, Number - Fractions and Decimals, Geometry - Shape, Geometry - Position and Direction, Measurement, Ratio and Proportion, Statistics and Algebra.
A clear programme is identified and ensures a balance between mental and written methods.
The Key Skills to be taught in each year group can be found on the class pages.
