Mathematics is important in everyday life and, with this is mind, the purpose of mathematics at Lawford CE Primary School is to develop an ability to solve problems, to reason, to think logically and to work systematically and accurately.
All children are challenged and encouraged to excel in Maths. New mathematical concepts are introduced using a ‘Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract’ approach; enabling all children to experience hands on learning when discovering new mathematical topics and allows them to have clear models and images to aid their understanding. The school uses the ‘White Rose Maths’ resources as a starting point for all our maths teaching.
Arithmetic and basic math skills are practised daily to ensure key mathematical concepts are embedded and children can recall this information to see the links between topics in Maths.
