Mathematics

Overview

The school plans and delivers high quality maths lessons, with an emphasis on using and applying maths in everyday life. These sessions are well-paced, engaging and active to develop a love for the subject. Teachers monitor and evaluate children’s progress rigorously to ensure each child reaches their individual potential.

Our goal is to ensure that every child leaving Field Junior School has a solid grounding in maths, as a result, mental skills are a high priority and this, coupled with modelling and teaching of mathematical language, underpins success for all.

Problem solving is a vital skill in maths and we like to encourage children to use what we do know to find out what we don’t know. Opportunities for practical maths activities are included in our teaching to enable children to explore mathematical concepts and to consolidate learning.

We encourage parents to practise essential maths skills at home e.g. times tables, telling the time, working with money, halving and doubling and number bonds.
