We teach the fundamental skills of mathematics through a creative yet practical curriculum. All teachers have been trained in the CAME (Cognitive Acceleration through Maths Education) ‘Let’s think through maths’ technique which uses an explorative approach to maths to stimulate cognitive development. This can lead to long term improvements in learning across all subjects, as well as a good grounding in mathematics.
Pupils’ thinking and communication skills are encouraged in mathematics lessons through planned activities that involve speaking and listening, reading and writing.
We provide real life situations to encourage mathematical reasoning and to show examples of what reasoning involves. This helps the pupils become more confident in problem solving by practising and refining their skills and strategies.
Our aim is to inspire all children to succeed by opening doors of understanding so they can flourish.
We are also using Mathletics in years 2-6. In 2016 we entered the Mathletics November numeracy challenge and our children came 44th out of over 500 schools.
Let's make something beautiful together...
