Mathematics

Mathematics is a key life skill and we therefore aim to develop knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematics linking these to real life problems and practical applications.  Emphasis is put on developing an understanding of number and calculation skills as these underpin all other areas of mathematics.  From year 1 onwards, children will learn their times tables and practise mental calculation skills each day.  This develops confidence and extends their reasoning and thinking skills as well as their ability to select the appropriate mathematics to tackle more complex problems as they move through the school.
