Daily maths lessons encourage pupils to enjoy maths and instil a confident, positive attitude towards the subject. Children are taught to make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems.
We encourage children at Eversley to have a ‘hands on’ approach to mathematics, to delve into all practical activities with confidence and to think flexibly because we place such a strong emphasis on problem solving.
At Eversley, we encourage the children to understand that a problem is only a problem, if they cannot solve it. Children are taught to persevere, have self-belief and the determination to succeed in solving problems in order to be the best mathematicians that they can be.
Please see below some further information on Maths Calculation methods which is also designed to give pupils a consistent and smooth progression of learning in calculations across the school.
