At Westfield CP School we teach Maths in discrete daily lessons and are firm believers that it can also be used in all areas of the curriculum. We feel that fluency in Mental Maths and the skill of being able to use number facts quickly and accurately is extremely important. Therefore we place it at the heart of our teaching of the subject.
We ensure children receive lots of opportunities to apply their Maths skills through problem solving and reasoning lessons. These are taught throughout the week in each class. We also take part in STEM activities which combine the subjects of Science, Technology and Maths together. The children show great enthusiasm during these lessons and particularly enjoy problem solving in other areas of the curriculum.
