At Thrumpton, we believe it is important to develop basic mathematical skills, concepts, attitudes and knowledge appropriate to each child’s development. As a result, the children are taught skills in mental and written calculation and are provided opportunities to develop skills of problem solving and mathematical reasoning through practical tasks, enquiry, experimentation and creative maths.
By providing purposeful and varied opportunities for children to develop their mathematical skills, we hope to encourage positive attitudes and enjoyment of mathematics and to assist pupils in fostering an understanding of its relevance for life.
Mathematics is taught through daily maths lessons, where links with other curriculum areas are made whenever possible.
