Have you noticed we're raising the profile of maths?!
The Maths Passport provides a guide for parents and carers as to what maths facts children can work on at home.
Practising their mental recall of basic facts will improve their confidence when doing numeracy work at school.

We regularly bring in the Kinetic Theatre Company to put on an educating and entertaining show for the children. March's show, "Mummy Mia", focused on numbers, digits, odd and even, addition, partitioning, angles, pictograms, sums, measurements and scales as well as degrees, rotations, compass points, graphs and negative numbers.
Our annual Maths Week is a fun way for children to explore maths in the world around them, and provides opportunities for parents and carers to get information on how children are taught in order to be able to support them at home.
We had a great turnout at our last maths meeting for parents at the end of 2012, where we discussed the maths methods used in school, provided handouts and took orders for a wide range of maths resources.
One of our key ongoing aims is to ensure greater challenge for our more able pupils by differentiating Learning Intentions and providing additional learning opportunities such as Maths Club in Years 5 and 6.
