Mathematics at Seaton St Paul's C of E Junior School

At Seaton St. Paul's C of E Junior School, we believe that Mathematics teaches children how to make sense of the world around them through developing their ability to calculate, reason and solve problems. It enables children to understand relationships and patterns in both number and space in their everyday lives. 

 

Our objectives in the teaching of mathematics are to:

  • promote enjoyment of learning through practical activity, exploration and discussion;
  • promote confidence and competence with numbers and the number system;
  • develop the ability to solve problems through decision-making and reasoning in a range of contexts;
  • develop a practical understanding of the ways in which information is gathered and presented;
  • explore features of shape and space, and develop measuring skills in a range of contexts;
  • help children understand the importance of mathematics in everyday life;
  • develop the cross-curricular use of mathematics in other subjects.
