We hope to excite and enthuse the children during this week with our 'Magical Maths'. Author and 'mathemagician' Andrew Jeffrey will be visiting us on Tuesday 31st January to perform his 'Magic of Maths' show for the children. This is bound to be a real treat. In class, the children will be exploring numbers, playing and working out how maths 'tricks' are done. We are sure this week will result in all our children loving maths.
We feel that the skills of being able to tell the time, using both analogue and digital clocks, being able to convert between units of time, read timetables, find time differences and confidently solve real life time problems are a priority for all children and something essential for their future lives. During the year all the children will be given many varied and fun opportunities to learn and practise these skills.

It is important that our children develop a positive attitude towards mathematics with a competence and confidence in mathematical knowledge, concepts and skills. We aim to achieve fluency in number through varied and frequent practice of key number facts and by providing regular opportunities for children to apply their knowledge of facts rapidly and accurately. With this in mind, we have organised our maths challenges: Rocket Maths for the younger children and Times Table Challenge for the older ones.
