Maths is taught in a variety of ways. This includes whole class teaching, practical sessions, individual and group work. The teaching of basic number and calculation skills is fundamental to our approach to maths and is set out in our calculation policy (2017).
Mental arithmetic is a daily activity and there is a structured programme of learning and using the times tables.
We use the objectives of 2014 National Curriculum to encourage investigation, discovery and problem solving. All children have a daily session of maths lasting between 45 minutes and one hour.
In Creative Learning Journey units we also develop problem solving skills through cross curricular activities.
In November 2009 we introduced the use of mathletics (http://www.mathletics.co.uk/) throughout the school. It is an online teaching resource that is designed to raise standards in maths through the use of games and competition on a global scale.
