We believe that every child should develop a love of mathematics in their time at St Bart’s. We aim to develop our children as mathematicians who enjoy engaging with the processes of problem solving over and above the completion of the actual calculations involved. We embed the core skills of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, realising the importance and application of number in an everyday real life context.
We promote the importance of learning the multiplication tables and their related division facts through fun, effective, relevant lessons, celebrating individual achievements along the way.
We develop an understanding of shape, data and measures through practical creative lessons which are often cross-curricular.
We actively promote outdoor learning, pupil led investigations and real life problem solving.
Our teaching of mathematics aims to equip children with the necessary numeracy skills to allow them to use different methods and strategies in everyday life as they continue on their learning journeys.
