Maths


Teachers use every relevant subject to develop pupils’ mathematical fluency. Confidence in numeracy and other mathematical skills is a precondition of success across the national curriculum. Teachers develop pupils’ numeracy and mathematical reasoning in all subjects so that they understand and appreciate the importance of mathematics. Pupils should be taught to apply arithmetic fluently to problems, understand and use measures, make estimates and sense check their work. Pupils should apply their geometric and algebraic understanding, and relate their understanding of probability to the notions of risk and uncertainty. They should be taught to apply their mathematics to both routine and non-routine problems, including breaking down more complex problems into a series of simpler steps.

To support home learning, children and teachers have access to Mathletics; supporting their work from school, at home.

Maths Week 2016

Throughout the school all classes took part in our Maths Week. We started the week with an exciting assembly, where children battled in a Maths quiz against the teachers.  All classes then had exciting Lessons based around ‘Maths in London’ . The children learnt lots of interesting new information and skills from heights of famous buildings, drawing buildings to scale, working out traveling times and journeys across London to planning the cost of days out.
Many pupils also took part in a school-wide competition. This required the pupils to carefully think about nets and then create 3D models of famous London attractions.
