Maths

 

The new curriculum has opened up some exciting new opportunities at Prescot Primary.

Children are encouraged to explain their thinking and the use of mathematical language and speaking in full clear sentences is part of the daily routine. The children have access to a variety of resources, enabling them to deepen their mathematical understanding and assist them in their learning by having concrete resources to demonstrate concepts. Application of their knowledge is essential, this helps to prepare children for real life. Problem solving not only builds resilience to life in general, but also enables the children to consider a sensible and logical starting point on which they can build.
