Learning values for life

Maths

Here at Chantry, we believe that mathematics is concerned with the nature of numbers and space, pattern and the relationships between all of these areas. It is a creative activity requiring not only the acquisition of facts and skills, but also understanding gained through exploration and application.

As the children move through the school, they build on their strategies until they reach a point where the children themselves can choose the most efficient strategy to solve the given problem.  The teachers also provide regular opportunities for children to practise counting and the related number facts in order to help them achieve fluency.

Our teaching staff positively encourage children to see and use mathematics as a tool for everyday life and we believe that a broad mathematical education is essential for children’s future learning.  We provide children with a variety of methods and resources to aid their understanding of mathematical ideas. 

These can include: 

Numicon

Base 10

Number Lines

Expanded Methods

 We also take part in the West Area partnership Times table challenge as well as other maths competitions run by local businesses.  This year we have finalists from key stage 1 and lower key stage 2 times table challenge.  The final for 2017 will take place on Wednesday 1st March.  Good luck team!
