Children have a daily numeracy lessons in which they are grouped to meet their individual needs. Each numeracy group covers the same area of maths, but at a different pace using different learning styles.
The children are encouraged to explore all aspects of mathematics by talking about it, using apparatus and relating it to real-life experiences. Numeracy is continually linked to real life problem solving and pupils will be given opportunities to extend their knowledge and skills in number, place value, time, shape and space, measures, handling data and using calculators.
As well as building confidence with formal written methods for the four operations, there is also an emphasis on children verbalising their mathematical thinking and explaining their reasoning.
Please have a look at the following models to help your child at home:

Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary in most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
The National Curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
n become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils have conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately to problems
n reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
n can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
The Programme of study has been organised into year group objectives which are sequential and allow the child to apply mathematical skills across a range of subjects.
