We have a daily maths lesson where your child gains confidence in exploring number. Every child participates in a ‘mental maths’ starter; covering counting forwards and backwards, counting in steps of 2, 5 & 10 and finding number bonds. Throughout the year they will cover addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, measures, geometry, money, time, direction and problem solving. They will be encouraged to develop a love of maths by challenging themselves to applying their knowledge to solve a range of problems. For example:-
Counting 10s on the abacus.
Children practising their counting on the abacus in the outside area.
Exploring the properties of 2D shapes outside.
