Maths

At St Thomas a Becket Catholic Primary School, ‘We aim to ensure that all pupils know and use the basic mathematical skills confidently.’ Children will gain a broad and balanced understanding of all areas of mathematics through good teaching and hands on activities. In addition, children will have frequent opportunities to develop their mathematical reasoning through involvement in a range of engaging problem solving activities.

Children are taught maths lessons on a daily basis throughout the week covering many areas including number and place value, calculation methods, measurement, shape and data handling. Children use a variety of practical resources to support their learning including innovative uses of ICT.

Through teaching children these essential skills, we hope that our children become confident mathematicians who are able to apply these skills to daily life challenges.
