We are using the '21 steps' to assess where your children at in their maths learning. Each term we will revisit, and then build upon the objectives laid out for each year group in the National Curriculum Programme of Study to ensure that the fundamental concepts are embedded. We also refer to Hamilton Trust to enhance our planning and learning. We think this is essential so that your children are able to 'use and apply' this knowledge as they progress through the school and into adulthood. We are very keen on using practical equipment (manipulatives) throughout the school.
