What I love about maths, is that it’s open to all. Maths is an essential tool for everyday life and for the understanding of the world, it enables the development of pupils' natural ability to think logically, to solve puzzles and real-life problems.. As a teacher, it’s great to see the buzz from pupils when they understand a concept or solve a problem correctly - the ‘wow’ or ‘got it’ moments are so motivational.
The pupils at All Saints thrive on maths learning, from our youngest to the oldest pupils. We teach methods linked to the White Rose maths curriculum which promotes learning through concrete methods. Our daily maths meetings engage the pupils and they are always eager to participate and to develop their knowledge.
Maths uses critical thinking and builds problem-solving skills. Learning to look at a problem—whether a maths problem or a life problem—and come up with a plan is an important skill to master, we promote these through STEM based activities in which pupils have the opportunities to apply their learning to practical problems. It is our intention that the pupils leave All Saints well prepared for their next stage of education and with the mathematical building blocks of their future lives firmly in place.
