Mathematics at SMCPS
Everyone can be great at maths!
At South Molton Community Primary School we believe that all pupils can achieve at maths. We aim to provide our pupils with the skills and confidence to solve a range of problems through fluency with numbers and mathematical reasoning. Children are encouraged to see the mathematics in the world around them and above all to enjoy developing their skills in this subject.
When watching the pupils in their maths lessons and looking through their books you should see the three aims of the National Curriculum; fluency, reasoning and problem solving, in their everyday learning and the work that they are completing.
Parents are encouraged to support their children at home through developing pupils fluency in different number areas. Developing mathematical fluency is as important as reading fluency and we expect our parents to spend time supporting their children in this area at home. Please see the Parent's section of the website to access ways to help at home through our number and times tables challenges and key instant recall facts for children to learn at home. Please come and see your class teacher to talk about your child's learning and ways to help at home.
Above all we want children to enjoy maths and build confidence in their mathematical ability- Everyone can do maths!
