Maths and Numeracy covers ‘Number, Money, Measure’, ‘Shape Position and Movement’ and ‘Information Handling’.
As part of our programme, we develop and practise using mental maths skills and problem solving strategies from Primary 1 to Primary 7. We use Heinemann maths, Teejay Maths and a variety of other resources to support learning. The emphasis is upon understanding and practical application of learning rather than the completion of a workbook or textbook page.
Where a natural connection or link arises within another subject area or topic, we use this opportunity to reinforce and embed concepts in a context that makes the learning more relevant, e.g. enterprise contexts are often used to develop numeracy across learning, where children produce business plans, balance sheets and calculate profit and loss.
