Maths

‘I am passionate about my belief that everyone can be a good mathematician. It’s about tapping into the way children learn and understand and having that at the heart of every lesson. I use different approaches to teaching a concept until every child has a confident mathematical understanding. Maths is all around us, it’s everyday life, it’s part of what we do. It’s shapes, building, sport, exercise, travelling, time, making, designing, gardening, shopping, working; maths is everywhere! Teaching maths is about developing the children’s curiosity to problem solve and find out.’  

Mrs Edwards, Deputy Head and Maths Specialist Teacher  

The teaching of Maths in the Nursery, Kindergarten and Reception classes takes place both indoors and outdoors through a wide range of practical and “hands-on” activities. The staff use their knowledge to plan for a high-quality learning environment that provides children with opportunities to explore different aspects of number and shape, space and measures. Numicon is used to enhance the children’s understanding by helping the children to make connections between numbers, supporting children as they learn early maths skills.
