Mathematics

Mathematics is divided into four outcomes:

Problem solving and enquiry
Information handling
Number, money, measurement
Shape, position and movement

We aim to enable our children to become competent in all aspects of number and acquire the concepts and the mental agility necessary to be confident in applying mathematics in real life situations. The children will be given lots of opportunities to develop these skills through a variety of practical activities and play situations

The main text used from P.1 - P.7 is the Heinemann Mathematics Programme which is a programme designed to meet the needs of the National Curriculum. Various other texts are used to supplement this main Programme. The children will be given many relevant, real life activities to practice and develop their mathematical skills.

Calculators and computers also play a part in the teaching of Mathematics. Staff use a variety of interactive software to support learning and teaching.
