Mathematics

Subject Leader - Mrs Russell

Mathematics teaches us how to make sense of the world around us through developing a child’s ability to calculate, to reason and to solve problems. It enables children to understand and appreciate relationships and pattern in both number and space in their everyday lives. Through their growing knowledge and understanding, children learn to appreciate the contribution made by many people to the development and application of mathematics.

At Forefield Junior School we aim to to provide the opportunity for children to experience success and enjoyment from mathematical study in order to develop a confident and positive approach to the subject. We want children to develop mental arithmetic skills and mental methods to help children observe the patterns and relationships of mathematics. Our lessons encourage the use of mathematical language when children discuss, explain and express ideas. Our curriculum supports children to develop the creativity and flexibility of mind to investigate and problem solve both independently and collaboratively.
