We instill a love of maths through practical, hands on activities, which enable the children to grasp the fundamental skills in order to succeed. Underpinning mathematical understanding begins in Reception and is built upon in each of the Key Stages. All classes follow the Lancashire Maths Scheme of Work, which breaks down skills to help children progress towards the mastery of their end of year targets in the aspects of Curriculum 2014:
- Number: Number & Place Value, Addition & Subtraction, Multiplication & Division, Fractions (including decimals & percentages)
- Geometry: Properties of Shapes, Position and Direction
- Ratio and Proportion
We are well resourced in school and staff provide innovative and exciting methods for engaging and inspiring children to persevere with challenging concepts. Through practical, and problem solving activities children’s understanding is embedded in order to learn the most efficient methods, either mental or written, or a mixture of both.
Here are some useful websites which allow you to enhance your maths skills at home.
