The Mathematics curriculum is based on practical experiences and real life problems. Experiences are often based on school, shops and the home.

Children are expected to have working knowledge of the four rules of number by the age of seven. Tables and number bonds are to be learnt by heart, after practical experiences, in order to help mental agility within mathematics.

A wide range of mathematical ideas are covered throughout the school. Published maths schemes are used to help supplement teacher generated work.

Parents can help support their child by discussing four rules of number at home. Space Mission Instant Recall Facts (SMIRFS) are sent home to learn and are tested regularly within school to develop children’s mental maths skills.
