Mathematics

Welcome to Maths!

 

 

This academic year at All Saints we have adopted the Abacus scheme, which teaches maths via the Mastery approach. 

The Mastery approach originates from Singapore and follows the idea that the class only moves on to the next lesson when the majority have 'mastered' the particular skills involved. 

 

Maths is part of our daily lives and you can practise mental arithmetic where ever you are! 

 

 

Here are just a few ideas for practising maths at home:

  • Revise times tables facts and related division
  • Roll a dice to generate numbers for mental addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
  • Calculate the total bill in a shop or at a restaurant
  • Play games on reputable websites like My Maths
  • Wear a watch and tell someone the time throughout the day
  • Measure ingredients for baking  
  • Estimate journey lengths and times when you go on holiday
  • Read bus and train timetables

 

At All Saints, we love to take our maths learning out of the classroom...
