At St Mary’s, we see the importance of maths in everyday life and we want our children to: be number fluent; solve problems; to reason; to think logically and to work systematically and accurately. All children are challenged to excel in Maths and have a positive attitude and enjoyment when approaching lessons. 

New mathematical concepts are introduced using a ‘Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract’ approach; enabling all children to have a hands-on practical experience when learning new mathematical topics throughout school. Through this approach, our children have clear images and models to aid their understanding. This then helps the children with making connections across the different areas of maths. We understand that the fluency and recall of basic facts and times tables are key to mathematical concepts, therefore arithmetic and times table are practised daily to embed these facts.
