Maths

As with Literacy, all the children will be taught Maths for an hour each day, following recommended guidance.  In the Numeracy Strategy we use a variety of schemes and resources so that children have a wide range of experiences. We place importance on the development of mental maths skill throughout school and much of the work in Key Stage 1 is of a very practical nature. To enable children to develop a sound knowledge of number skills and mathematical concepts, the topics are repeated yearly, allowing them to reinforce and extend their understanding. Where possible we link mathematic skills to real life situations to ensure children understand how their work will be useful to them.
