Mathematics is taught on a daily basis from Early Years up to Year 6. Teachers use the Lancashire Grid for Learning's scheme of work to plan lessons that meet the New Curriculum from Years 1-6. Classrooms have supportive displays, as well as areas with mathematical equipment for the children to use. In the Early Years and Key Stage One there are maths areas in each classroom. These are used during afternoon continuous provision sessions. Practical activities are carried out throughout the school to bring maths to life and ensure real life skills are put into context. Children receive maths homework which links to the work that has been carried out in school. We strive to meet the Government target for all children to know their times tables up to 12x12 by the end of year 4. Continuing to work with your child at home and encouraging them to learn their times tables has a positive impact in school.
