Mathematics is often used in everyday life to explain, predict and represent events. In the Numeracy lesson children are provided with the opportunity to develop practical skills, understanding of concepts, facts and operations outlined in the National Curriculum.
A three-part Mathematics lesson, involving a mental warm up activity is taught every day. In addition the children undertake daily independent mental mathematics activities to build their quick recall of number facts and mental agility. Children are encouraged to become familiar with the use of a calculator and other ICT equipment and to use them in a variety of contexts.
Our aims are to help all children to experience pleasure, success and enjoyment in mathematical experiences in order to develop a confident and positive attitude towards their work.
