At Earls Colne Primary School and Nursery, we aim to develop in children a love of number and the aspiration to solve problems.
We have a strong emphasis on mental calculation where children are given the time and support to reach solutions with speed and accuracy.
Speaking and listening is a big part of our mathematical learning environment, and we aim to give children the confidence to talk about how and why they have used certain strategies.
As Mathematics is such an important life skill, our curriculum is designed in a way that equips our children with the skills necessary for life outside the classroom.
We use real life situations in order to develop their problem solving capabilities, and teachers bring creative and progressive lessons into the classroom.
In order to further promote enjoyment, and to support progress and overall attainment, the children will often use practical resources and ICT programs.
Some children can feel afraid of maths and can become demotivated from quite a young age. However, here at Earls Colne Primary School, we strive to put the magic into learning so that pupils develop mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills as well as a love of number!
