Maths

 

The Maths curriculum is delivered in themed blocks around a broad unit of work. Children develop their skills and understanding of Maths through a range of concrete, pictorial and abstract activities and through doing this, pupils develop their fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills.

 

While every effort is made to cater for all different learners, at St Matthew’s Bloxam we work towards teaching for mastery in every class. This means, as much as possible, the whole class accesses the same task but the level of access may differ, depending on ability.

World Maths Week- November 2021

 

We have had a fantastic week celebrating Maths Week England! The children created some art pieces, using maths to help them, they took part in 'Maths at the movies', we saw lots of open-ended maths problems being completed and the children also took part in Times Table Rock Star Battles! It has been so lovely to see the buzz around Maths, from Nursery all the way to Year 6!
