Maths at Kempsey Primary School

Here at kempsey Primary School we believe that every child has the potential to be a good mathematician.  Our approach is very much based on activities that centre on real life and will often link to the topic taking place. There will always be an element of challenge and children will be asked to justify their thinking during opportunities for purposeful maths talk. We are aware that children learn in different ways and believe that a multi-sensory, practical approach can both support and progress a child’s mathematical ability and thinking.   Problem solving will take place at different times during the learning cycle, and Key skills have been identified for each year group and are revisited regularly. Revisiting concepts is one way for children to demonstrate mastery. We give the children opportunities to showcase their talents as often as possible.
