Mathematics at Westmoor Primary

MATHS POLICY

Mathematics at Westmoor Primary Information

In accordance with the National Curriculum , each year group follows a prescribed programme of study with a daily mathematics lesson. There is an emphasis on mental calculation leading to standard written methods at later stages. The daily lesson may include oral work and mental calculation, an independent activity and direct teaching and an opportunity for children to feedback on their learning.

 

Understanding of mathematical concepts is vital and therefore practical, problem-solving and investigative approaches are taught. Children are encouraged to discuss methods used to answer questions. We ensure that the children have an awareness of the uses of mathematics beyond the classroom and relate mathematics work to everyday life. We aim to maintain and increase each pupil’s confidence in mathematics and develop his/her appreciation and enjoyment of mathematics.
