Numeracy skills are taught to all year groups every day in both direct lessons and discreetly across the curriculum. Pupils are taught a variety of topics based on key objectives. These objectives are taken from the New 2014 Curriculum.
Our teaching Sequences: Teaching for Mastery
The objectives from our four areas of learning (Number sense, additive reasoning, multiplicative reasoning and geometric reasoning are arranged into dedicated blocks where pupils are taught key skills then encouraged to develop their reasoning skills. All year 1 -6 pupils have access to Mathletics, an online learning platform. Please ask the class teacher if you require log on details.
Children use a range of written methods for completing addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. Many of the methods the children use may be different to the ones that you were taught at school. Please refer to the school calculation policy and numeracy policy to view methods being used.
