Mathematics


At The Gleddings high priority is given to developing the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding in Mathematics so that they learn to make mental calculations with confidence, enjoy the challenge of solving mathematical problems and work towards being good numerate adults.

Children are encouraged to develop their skills in Numeracy through the use of practical equipment and a wide range of real life and fun situations. They also learn how to explore numbers, patterns and shape, learn their times tables and carry out more formal calculations.

Strong emphasis is placed on developing accurate measuring skills and in learning to apply the mathematical concepts they have been taught to other subjects and situations in their every day life.
