Mathematics teaches us how to make sense of the world around us through developing a child’s ability to calculate, to reason and to solve problems. It enables children to understand and appreciate relationships and pattern in both number and space in their everyday lives.
At Kingsway Primary School, children are taught mathematical skills and how to apply these to meaningful situations. To develop a confident and positive attitude towards Mathematics, children have the opportunity to practise their calculation strategies every morning during our '4 Rules Practice'. Our Mathematics curriculum is differentiated so that children work at levels appropriate to their ability.There is a emphasis on communication, problem solving and reasoning. Children have the opportunity to take part in weekly 'Guided Reasoning' lessons where they work in groups to solve interesting and varied problems.
