Numeracy & Maths

Understanding numbers and patterns is the basis of mathematics.

 

Most of our teaching focuses on number knowledge and strategies for solving problems.

To encourage a love of maths we use a variety of approaches:

* Mixed ability grouping

* Real world problems

* Open ended problems

* Creative maths tasks

* Students collaborating rather than competing

* Valuing deep thinking instead of speed

* Seeing mistakes as a way of learning more

* Valuing different ways of solving the same problem 

 

 

The Achievement Expectations for Mathematics set out what students would usually be able to do at various levels across the school.
