At Okehampton we aim to develop children that are confident, numerate learners who are able to apply and use these skills in everyday life.
Maths is taught through a daily maths lesson. There is an emphasis on the development of mental arithmetic and giving opportunities for pupils to use and apply mathematics in real life situations. Number and calculations make up much of the main focus of learning but in addition to this children work on shape and space and measures.
In the Foundation Stage, children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum opportunities for number, calculation and shape, space and measures. Learning for these areas is through children's play and group activities inside and outside.
Class teachers also plan for opportunities to develop and apply key mathematical skills in other subjects throughout the year through the connected curriculum.
In addition to this we aim to make Maths exciting and creative not just in lessons but also with events such as 'Money Week', 'Maths Days' where children learn and recall their number bonds and times tables.
