Cottesmore St Mary Catholic Primary School


Mathematics  

 

At Cottesmore St Mary, we use a structured and systematic approach to the teaching of calculations. There is considerable emphasis on teaching mental calculation methods and the National Curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that children are fluent in the fundamentals of maths, that they can reason mathematically and they can solve problems. We believe that once children have been taught the variety of methods our long term aim is for children to be able to select efficient method of their choice that is appropriate for a given task.
