Maths is an integral and important part of everyday life. We aim to provide children with the opportunities to develop and use their maths skills confidently and independently. We do this by providing opportunities for problem solving, logical thinking and by developing an awareness of number and shape through practical activities, as well as by teaching numeracy skills. There is a daily maths lesson, but maths is cross curricular, so is often practised in other curriculum areas too. Mondays are designated ‘Mad Maths Mondays’ when the Maths lessons are of a problem solving/deepening/mastery/game type - designed to focus the children and enable them to enjoy, use and apply their knowledge as well as practise specific problem solving approaches, such as draw a diagram or table or use trial and error.
