We will develop mental and written methods of calculation through several mini-topics that will provide authentic contexts for our problem-solving work. These topic areas include The Power of the Wind, Guinness World Records, Gilwern Maths, and I’m a Celebrity. Mathematics will be taught during morning sessions and we will be given the opportunity to practise our numeracy skills throughout the curriculum. We will learn how to apply our numeracy skills and explain our reasoning, making frequent links to mathematics in the real world.
We aim to make the maths exciting and purposeful; learning the procedural skills and applying them through problem solving and real life contexts. To accompany the skills developed, we encourage our children to enhance their skills by using Mathletics and Nessy, both at school and at home.
