Mathematics

At St John’s Maths is taught through daily lessons which aim to cover all aspects of mathematics through a topic based approach. In order to develop mathematical skills, children from Year 2 are streamed for the Maths lesson. There are also extension Level 6 classes for the more able children.

Within the Maths lesson, teachers aim to provide stimulating and exciting activities which promote interest and enjoyment in order to engage the children and help develop a sense of confidence and achievement. Importance is placed on the need to develop good mental arithmetic skills and resilience to tackling problems.

Class teachers also plan for regular opportunities for children to use and apply the skills they have learnt in a variety of ways and across many topics.
