Dedicated mathematics lessons from Nursery to Year 6 focus on number skills. The aim is to improve children's fluency (ability to make links and patterns). Investigations and problem solving tasks help pupils to embed and apply their number skills. Other areas of Mathematics are developed through the application of maths skills in cross curricular topic work.
As a result of our good practice and achievement in mathematics, we are working with the National Centre for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics (NCETM) to develop the mastery approach accross the school. Our Mathematics Coordinator, Mrs Swanepoel, is a mastery specialist working within the Great North Maths Hub and we have dedicated maths leaders in each phase.
