Maths is an essential and exciting part of our curriculum. Through our daily Maths teaching, we endeavour to ensure that all children are enabled to become confident mathematicians with the necessary skills to tackle Maths in daily life. To achieve this, we encourage cross curricular opportunities wherever possible, so that key concepts are reinforced and consolidated in real life contexts.
At Cogenhoe Primary School, we teach through progressive objectives, which challenge and support all learners in all areas of the Maths curriculum including Number, Place Value; Addition and Subtraction; Multiplication and Division; Fractions; Shape; Position, Direction and Movement; Measure and Statistics.
Our Mental Maths is fast paced, interactive and uses ongoing assessment to support and challenge learners as necessary. Across the school, we ensure that children use a range of practical resources to support their understanding of Maths and children demonstrate their learning in concrete, pictorial and abstract representations.
As a school, we recognise the importance of the parental role in securing each child’s success. Therefore, we offer parents workshops which explain the methods we use in school so that they can be fully involved in their child’s learning.
