At St Michaels Primary we believe that fluency and confidence in number facts are crucial elements in a child’s success and enjoyment in Mathematics. Children are encouraged to apply their knowledge of number facts, to help them develop their skills in reasoning and problem solving, using mathematical vocabulary to support this.

When teaching Maths at St Michaels, we ensure that:

-       Children are taught to master maths; making maths achievable for all children

-       Children are encouraged to use mathematical vocabulary to support their ability to reason and explain

-       Children are exposed to a range of methods, and encouraged to draw upon their preferred method when solving a problem

-       Children use concrete, pictorial abstract approach to support their learning

 We follow the White Rose Maths schemes of learning to support our teaching and assessment in Maths.
