Mathematics

We aim to help children develop their knowledge and understanding in an enjoyable way and our children’s ability to be confident and flexible in their approach to Mathematics is developed throughout the school. We aim for all our pupils to:

  • Have a sense of the size of numbers and where they fit into the number system;
  • Know by heart number facts such as number bonds, multiplication tables, doubles and halves;
  • Calculate accurately and efficiently, using both written and mental methods;
  • Apply the skills they have learned in practical situations;
  • Explain their methods and reasoning using correct Mathematical terms.

Mathletics

All of the children have their own personal log on for the internet based Mathletics. Using this log in the children are able to complete maths challenges online to earn points. Teachers may set specific challenges based on the child’s learning in the class, but once these are completed the children can have free reign to tackle anything they feel they need help on. For those wanting a challenge, the children can challenge other children in their school, country or even worldwide to a maths face-off. As soon as a child has earned 1000 points they will receive a bronze certificate. Five of these will result in a silver certificate and for of those will result in a gold certificate. On receiving a gold certificate, Mr Millett has a special secret stash of specially designed prizes to be handed on. So get online and let’s see how many gold mathletes we can produce.
