At Churchend, we believe that children need a creative and active approach to maths. We ensure that children become fluent in the fundamentals of maths through varied and frequent practice in order that they have the skills to face increasingly complex problems over time. We ensure that key maths vocabulary is referred to often and used clearly and explicitly in teaching. Children‘s counting skills are developed daily and children are required to be active and physical in this session. We encourage children to reason mathematically and our children are encouraged to talk about what they are doing and how they are going to set about solving a problem. Our mathematics ensures that children are challenged to test their methods by using different apparatus and strategies.
