Mathematics equips our pupils with a uniquely powerful set of tools to understand the world around them. These include logical reasoning, problem-solving skills and the ability to think in an abstract way.
Mathematics is vital and integral in everyday life Mathematics is vital and integral in everyday life. With this in mind, we endeavour to ensure that our children develop a healthy and enthusiastic attitude towards Mathematics that will stay with them forever.
We ensure that mathematics and numeracy experiences are engaging, exciting and accessible for learners, and that they ensure that learners develop mathematical resilience (the ability to embrace challenge as a positive aspect of learning).
In all progression steps, outdoor and authentic learning for mathematics is a fundamental part of numeracy lessons, helping to provide rich and unique learning experiences for all our learners. Real-life examples drawn from the local, national and international environment help them make connections between the concrete and the abstract.
In Trellech Primary School, we encourage learners to explore links with mathematics and numeracy across all areas of learning and in the real world. We are committed to providing our learners with a broad and balanced curriculum that enables them to realise the four purposes and equips them for ongoing learning, work and life.
