Mathematics at Dimple Well aims to provide children with the knowledge, skills and experiences so that they are confident and enthusiastic mathematicians. Mathematics helps children to make sense of the world around them through developing their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. It enables them to understand and appreciate relationships and patterns in both number and space in their everyday lives. The National Curriculum is at the core of our Mathematics teaching. The teaching incorporates the strands of learning currently outlined in the National Curriculum:
- Number – Number and Place Value
- Number – Addition and Subtraction
- Number – Multiplication and Division
- Number – Fractions
- Geometry – Properties of Shape
- Geometry – Position and DirectionStatistics
The Mathematics Curriculum is enhanced in many ways across the school. Children are provided with opportunities to learn and consolidate existing skills by adopting both discrete and cross curricular learning methods. Through creative approaches to learning, the children are supported and encouraged to use mathematics in real life situations. We use a range of stimuli to engage the children which includes using Information Communications Technology (ICT) to support teaching and learning in mathematics.
