We will develop mental and written methods of calculation through several mini-topics that will provide authentic contexts for our problem-solving work. 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. During the Autumn term the children will look at rationing and managing a budget.
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.
