Mathematics and Numeracy

Pupils learn about:- information handling; number, money and measurement; shape, position and movement; problem solving and mental mathematics

 

We are piloting a new approach to the teaching of Mathematics and Numeracy through our ‘Mixed Maths’ programme. Pupils from P3-P7 are mixed according to their level and taught accordingly. As well as providing opportunity for greater depth of learning and clear lines of progression, it allows pupils to work with different pupils and staff.

 

Most concepts taught are developed through practical activity and every attempt is made to ensure that pupils are given work appropriate to their needs. There is an emphasis on accuracy and on an interactive approach to the solving of problems. Links between mathematics and other curricular areas are explored and numeracy is developed across the curriculum. The application of mathematical thinking to every-day life is brought to the attention of pupils, wherever relevant.
