Mathematics is important in everyday life. Through teaching and learning in this area we aim to develop children’s confidence and enthusiasm in using and applying mathematical skills and knowledge to the real world around them.
Our teaching programme will be based on the revised Primary Framework for Mathematics and emphasise practical activities in order to develop the five strands of numeracy:
- Numbers and number systems
- Solving problems
- Measure, shape and space
- Data Handling
We recognise the importance of cross curricular links with Science, Technology, Geography and other subjects, and opportunities to apply numeracy skills across the curriculum are promoted by teachers.
