Mathematics

At St Thomas More's there is an emphasis on the need for pupils to acquire a sound understanding of mathematical concepts together with good language skills to further the communication of mathematical ideas and experiences.

 

Maths experiences will encompass the following learning areas – Number; Measurement, Chance and Data; Patterns, Space & Geometry.

 

Through these experiences children will develop a competency appropriate to their band of development.


An important part is understanding and using Maths in real life situations and to solve problems.


The appropriate use of calculators is also included in the activities presented to children.
