Maths is essential to everyday life and necessary for most forms of employment.
At Elmtree, Maths is taught daily through the National Curriculum to enable children to become fluent in the basics of maths, solve problems and reason mathematically.
In Key Stage 1, (Years 1 and 2), pupils develop confidence and mental fluency with whole numbers, place value and counting. They work with numerals and words to develop the skills of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division using practical resources where appropriate.
Children also learn to recognise, draw, describe and compare different shapes. Skills are also developed in quantities such as length, mass, time, money, capacity and volume.
