Numeracy and Mathematics

Children learn basic number skills, i.e. addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, as well as developing problem-solving and practical skills and knowledge. Oral and mental maths has a significant role to play in developing mental agility and time is spent on this area of maths in each class on a daily basis. Maths lessons are made relevant to daily life so that children can develop the skills which they will need as adults. To assist our teaching and learning a variety of resources are used including Highland Numeracy & Mathematics and White Rose Maths. Other materials available in the school include Number Talks, Sum Dog and a variety of online programmes.
