"The constant quest for knowledge, learning and adventure..."
Following a review of how maths is taught and the skills our pupils need for their future we are ensuring they have an understanding of why maths is important in their lives and using real life contexts to demonstrate this.
Every class ensures manipulatives are used to support the children's understanding so they can make connections and reason about maths.
We are now encouraging the children to talk about maths and explain through reasoning when problem solving.
Our policy is currently under review and will be in place for October 2017
