We believe that children should have a sound practical understanding of everyday mathematics and many opportunities are organised to give them the first hand experiences they need.
Basic numeracy will always be important, together with a good understanding of which processes to use, in order to solve problems in real life settings.
We need to send children out into the world, able to use mathematics confidently and in a variety of new situations.
Therefore, we aim to provide children with opportunities to use and apply their mathematics skills through a wide variety of contexts, subjects and real life scenarios.
As a school we have produced a number of 'How to ...?' learning videos for parents, illustrating in a practical way the modern methods of teaching several of the basic numeracy methods used in classrooms today.
