Every Child Counts Teacher
The new National Curriculum: Mathematics
Mathematics at Petersfield Infant School
Our aim is for children to develop a positive and confident attitude towards mathematics.
Children learn through practical experience providing them with concepts to develop basic mathematical thinking. Children are encouraged to share their reasoning with others to give them confidence and independence.
Children have an opportunity to use and explore a wide range of resources to help them with their mathematical understanding. They encounter real life problems, for example, during the Harvest Market when they deal with money, applying the skills they have learnt.
