Our maths curriculum provides daily oral and mental work to develop and secure children’s calculation strategies. Each session involves a high proportion of direct teaching which demonstrate, explain and illustrate mathematical ideas. A variety of resources are used in all sessions including ICT. Effective questioning enables children to demonstrate and explain methods and reasoning; talking about maths is really important. We also plan to enable children to use their maths in every day situations and to solve problems. We link maths to other areas of the curriculum such as science and technology.
