Maths

Our mathematics curriculum covers everything from cooking with weights and measures all the way through to long division and algebra. New mathematical ideas are introduced with lots of hands-on experience at St Kew which gives our pupils an opportunity to learn the maths concept in great depth. Our pupils work in small groups with clear models and images to help their understanding. Their teachers facilitate the learning and children are challenged with regular reasoning and problem solving opportunities. Our weekly mental maths tests alongside reasoning and problem solving investigations develop children’s conceptual understanding enabling them to apply their skills to different problems. We explicitly teach strategies for calculation with a focus on mental methods, jottings and formal written methods.
