  • to promote enjoyment of learning through practical activity, exploration and discussion
  • to promote confidence with numbers and the number system
  • to develop the ability to solve problems through decision making and reasoning in a range of contexts
  • to develop a practical understanding of ways in which information is gathered and presented
  • to explore features of shape and space, and develop measuring skills in a range of contexts
  • to understand the importance of mathematics in everyday life

Maths and Times Table Rock Stars Day!

Wow! What a fantastic day we have all had. The children all looked absolutely wonderful in our Celebration Assembly. They all had a chance to stand up, do a twirl and show off their fabulous outfits to the whole school. It was great to see Reception and Year One wearing a variety of different ‘Maths’ costumes – I particularly loved seeing a human dice and calculator!

We also displayed the children’s maths posters around the hall for everyone to see at dinner time.

And as for our rock stars…all I can say is YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!

I can’t believe how much effort everyone has gone to, so I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone, you all got thoroughly involved and looked AWESOME!
