Mathematics is integral to all aspects of life and so it is important that children at St. Hugh’s enjoy learning and developing the skills necessary to feel confident and achieve success. Children are encouraged to actively participate in the learning process enabling them to become independent, inquisitive problem solvers! Strong emphasis is placed on the development of mental arithmetic and using and applying the knowledge and skills learnt to real-life problems and other curriculum areas.
Maths is taught through a daily numeracy lesson following the Primary Framework. Those pupils identified as needing extra help with the number aspect of the curriculum may be offered extra support in a small group for approximately 45 minutes a week. In addition, high achievers in Year 6 are given the opportunity to take part in Maths challenges offered by local secondary schools.
