“If you able to solve the problems in MATHS, then you are also able to solve the problems in your LIFE"

Vignesh

 

The study of mathematics, like the Nile, begins in minuteness but ends in magnificence.

Charles Caleb Colton

 

 

Approach to the teaching of mathematics at Leyburn Primary School

 

At Leyburn we encourage a love of mathematics for all children.

Our aim is to:

  • give children a lifelong love of mathematics.
  • ensure that children become fluent in fundamental/core skills of maths.
  • ensure that children use the fundamental/core skills they have gained to solve mathematical problems and reason mathematically.
  • support children who don’t make expected progress.

Early Years Foundation Stage

Children benefit hugely by exposure to mathematics from an early age.  With this in mind the children learn number rhymes and songs, and have access to a wide variety of equipment (such as objects to count, jigsaws, Numicon, number lines, maths games, rulers, measuring jugs etc) in the Foundation Stage to enable them to develop the fundamental skills of counting, reading and writing numbers and addition and subtraction in practical situations. At Leyburn Primary School the children have daily maths sessions and are also exposed to mathematics through enhanced, structured play.

 

Key Stages 1 and 2

From Year 1 upwards, the children have a daily maths session 

Numicon is the main resource that is used to support understanding of number and calculation.

 At Leyburn School the children in Key Stage 1 are also exposed to all areas of mathematics through enhanced, structured play. The children in Key Stage 2 are  exposed to all areas of mathematics through cross curricular links within their topic work (eg data handling in science, place value in history).
