Maths For Life

We are delighted to be working towards Liverpool Counts Quality Mark

We are delighted to be working towards Liverpool Counts Quality Mark 1

Liverpool Counts Quality Mark aims:

  • To raise standards in mathematics and numeracy

  • To raise the profile of mathematics and numeracy and challenge negative thinking towards this

  • To ensure children make real-life connections with maths and with other subjects

  • To help people understand the positive impact good numeracy skills have on different aspects of their lives e.g. social, financial, health and employment

We are delighted to have been awarded £700 from the Jo Walters Trust Maths Grant Awards. This grant will be used to help create and resource an outdoor maths station. Play leaders will be trained and will run the clubs at break times and lunch times so that everyone can enjoy maths activities at these times.

Exciting times!

 

You may have noticed some changes in our maths lessons. Over the last couple of years, we have been working hard to get our children thinking for themselves and really understanding what they are doing - rather than rote learning.

 

We believe that by asking the children to think deeper and become masters of their own learning, that they will become life long learners and have the skills, knowledge, understanding and stamina to tackle any situation.

 

This year we have implemented Maths No Problem! in most year groups. This is a high quality textbook  based on the successful Singapore methods of teaching maths.

 

The children will have the opportunity in all year groups to use concrete apparatus such as diennes, place value counters, tens frames etc. to really embed understanding.
