The school currently follows the Welsh Government’s Numeracy Framework, closely linked to the National Numeracy Strategy. The three main components of Mathematics are Number, Shape, Space and Measure and Data Handling.
Children are taught to solve 'real life' mathematical problems and to use these skills across all areas of the curriculum. We aim to ensure that our pupils have a sound understanding of the key mathematical principles and can apply them with confidence.
Children are encouraged to learn their multiplication tables and to understand the direct relationship between the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).
Mathematics is taught in a practical context whenever possible with the use of a wide range of resources, including interactive mathematical activities. All staff are trained in the use of Numicon, a highly effective mathematical resource.
