Mathematics is a lifelong skill. Itis a creative subject involving imagination, intuition and discovery. It is a way of solving problems and is a means of communicating information and ideas. At the Bedonwell Federation we present mathematics in a variety of different contexts in order to challenge and stimulate children’s thinking, reasoning & logic skills.
The Mathematics curriculum at Bedonwell is taught using the Early Years Foundation Stage Guidance in Nursery and Reception and the Mathematics Curriculum (2014) in key stages 1 and 2. We believe in providing children with lots of practical and meaningful experiences in Mathematics in order to foster their love of the subject.
Teachers prepare mathematics lessons using a range of resources, including Numicon. Pupils complete weekly homework activities using Education City and Mathletics. Problem-solving strategies are taught and practised during lessons.
