Good afternoon from the GIANT SWING! We’ve all had a chance to have a go and we have also tried archery too! Now we’re building up our appetites for fish and chips for dinner. https://t.co/NF2ZTd5cqi

Yesterday evening we all experienced Rifle Shooting and had a choice of curry or pork for dinner. This morning we were lucky enough to have a well needed lay in (wake up call was 7:30)! The boys have a very busy day ahead, it’s the BIG swing later on and the fancy disco tonight https://t.co/Hf6f4viNYH

Maths

Mathematics is a creative, connected and powerful subject. Our high quality teaching is designed to develop our students deeper understanding by improving their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills through rich and challenging mathematical experiences.

Our aim in all mathematics lessons is to provide children with:

Key questions that will facilitate and stimulate discussion; providing opportunities for children to articulate their reasoning clearly and challenge the reasoning of others through partner and whole class discussion.

The concrete models and images required to foster a deeper understanding of abstract concepts and algorithms.

Rich, engaging activities and problems which encourage them to make links between mathematical concepts and allow them to apply them cross the wider curriculum and within real life.

Regular, varied practice and application of number bonds, multiplication facts and mental and written arithmetic methods (in line with our calculation policy) to underpin their conceptual understanding and improve their arithmetical fluency.

No glass ceilings. In every lesson, every child has the chance to push themselves to the edge of their own current learning and assess their own next steps.

Mastery of mathematics is something that we want all pupils to acquire throughout their school lives, and beyond. To achieve this we include aspects of fluency, reasoning and problem solving in mathematics lessons and aim for all pupils to gain a deep understanding of mathematical concepts. 

For a step by step guide to how we teach calculations in each year group, please see our calculation policy below.
