Children are encouraged to use mathematical skills across all the curriculum areas in a variety of ways with a focus on mental maths fluency, reasoning and problem solving. Children use suitable age appropriate approaches to enable them to understand the basic principles of mathematics in a practical and meaningful way, understanding how mathematics fits into their everyday lives.
We develop a robust understanding of the rules of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to enable our children to use them with confidence. Staff understand how vital it is that children can recall number facts by heart (number bonds to ten and twenty, 10 more and 10 les, knowing x2, x3, x5, x10 multiplication tables) and can identify patterns and connections between the four maths concepts such as knowing that addition and subtraction are the inverse of one another.
