We follow the National Curriculum for Maths which aims to ensure that all children have a mathematically rich education and they can use and apply their skills across the curriculum. Understanding mathematical processes, concepts and skills is of great importance as we apply it to almost all aspects of our day to day life. At Cranborne First School, maths is taught on a daily basis across the school and throughout the year children will learn about number, place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, measurement, geometry and statistics. There is a strong emphasis on the development of mental arithmetic and activities are carried out throughout the school to bring maths to life and ensure real life skills are put into context. We encourage children’s enjoyment and confidence by engaging them in practical and interesting ways. Class teachers also plan opportunities that allow for the development and application of key mathematical skills in other subjects throughout the year.
