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 At the Races, James and the Giant Peach, Space and Our Local Area. 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.
Newport High School will form an exciting part of our Mathematics work, with Mrs. Clancy teaching us for one lesson per week. This will give us an opportunity to get to know how the High School structure their Mathematics lessons.
