At Ghyllgrove Primary School, we want to provide a fun, engaging and relevant Mathematics curriculum, which promotes the development of confident, independent and efficient mathematicians. By the end of their time at Ghyllgrove Primary School, we aim to have developed mathematically fluent children who enjoy the challenge of Mathematics, have a solid understanding of fundamental mathematical skills and have mastered a set of skills that will support them throughout life. Through daily Maths lessons and basic skills sessions, we aim for all children to develop a strong sense of number and our number system, proficiency in arithmetic and an ability to articulate their mathematical understanding and reasoning. As well as providing children with rich, real life examples and opportunities for the application of these skills in lessons, we continuously seek to provide opportunities across the curriculum and through partnership with our families at home, to promote Maths skills and shows their relevance in all aspects of everyday life.
To help enhance your child’s Maths knowledge at home, we are using a fun, interactive online resource called MyMaths. MyMaths is an interactive online teaching and homework service, full of lessons, quizzes and games, carefully matched to your child’s learning in class. Your child will be set a task and it will appear in the Homework area so don’t forget to log on and see what challenges you have been set. www.mymaths.co.uk and
