Mathematics

The mathematics curriculum has been developed in line with the National Curriculum in England to ensure that our children receive a thorough grounding in basic mathematical skills and concepts.

Early mathematical experiences lay the foundation for future expertise. Through imaginative, differentiated and practical activities, we ensure children find enjoyment in their learning, as well as appreciating the importance of mathematics.

The Abacus scheme is used as the basis of the mathematics curriculum from Years 1 - 6, with extension and support activities planned to ensure each child is appropriately challenged. Problem solving, investigation and high order thinking skills play a large part in the learning process.

Mathematics includes discussions, manipulation of concrete materials, investigations, problem solving, mental maths, practice and consolidation. The mathematics curriculum is divided into four main strands:

  • Number, including pattern and function, number systems, computation, decimals, percentages, fractions and numerical patterns
  • Data handling, including graph work and probability
  • Measurement
  • Shape and Space
