Here at Holy Innocents' we aim to recognise each individual child's potential and develop their mathematical understanding. Consequently, there are times during the day when the children are working as a class, in small groups or as individuals. In KS2 we have extended Maths classes to ensure the children reach their maximum potential, as well as morning Booster Classes.
Children need to understand the principles of mathematics, but equally need to be able to compute accurately and efficiently. The School places high emphasis on the basic skills of number. However, it is no good having skills in isolation, for children must be able to apply these skills in the solving of mathematical problems.
All parents are interested in their child’s development and we encourage you to help your child to learn their tables and number bonds quick recall as this obviously improves the child’s skills.
The main aims for our pupils are as follows:
range of calculation strategies;
needed to solve them;
