Our aim at St George’s C of E Primary School is to give all children access to a mathematics curriculum that is meaningful to everyday life, giving them the necessary skills that they will need for future learning and living, together with confidence in their own mathematical abilities. At St George’s C of E Primary School we teach mathematics in line with the new Primary Curriculum. This curriculum was implemented in September 2014. It covers the four main operations in maths – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, focusing on, using and applying, counting and understanding number, knowing and using number facts, calculating, understanding shape, and measure.
Daily lessons consist of the practice of mental skills, whole class teaching, individual and group work and a plenary session where misconceptions can be addressed and further learning opportunities identified.
