In the Early Years pupils are taught primarily through focused play activities. All children have individual number targets worked on either individually or in small groups.
Mathematics in KS1 &2 is taught primarily during a dedicated lesson, often within the morning session. Regular targets are set according to the needs of individual pupils. Pupils within a class with similar or identical targets may then be grouped accordingly. The targets set are carefully chosen to ensure that pupils succeed, therefore developing confidence and a positive attitude to work. Opportunities are taken, wherever possible, within the wider curriculum, to extend mathematical language, understanding and knowledge.
Our foremost aim is to ensure that, as far as possible, all pupils develop mathematical confidence in the practical situations of everyday life and that they develop a positive attitude to the subject. Consequently mathematical skills are developed across the curriculum.
