Equally important as Number confidence is the application of mathematical methods to solving problems. We know our pupils must also be able to apply their knowledge to solve real-life problems; this approach also makes sense of what is learnt. Finally, maths learning should be both challenging and fun. We take part in Active Maths sessions every week where children combine physical activity with mental problem solving. Open-ended investigations are explored at least every fortnight, allowing our young mathematicians the chance to take greater ownership of their learning.
Please look at our Progression in Calculations document to see how children progress in their written methods. Not all children progress at the same rate so please ask your child which method they use – Progression in Calculations.
