Course Information

We aim to allow each child to develop their Maths skills to their full potential. We also aim to develop confidence and enjoyment in Maths at all levels.

Our scheme of work is divided into five main topic areas, these are:-

 

            Using and Applying Maths              Shape and Space          Ratio and Proportion

            Number and Algebra                           Data Handling

The work on each of the five areas is spread out over the years. The first area, Using and Applying Maths is a general theme, which is integrated into the rest of our work.

In some lessons, the whole class will be working on the same activity. These are always designed so that all students can cope with the basic activity and further, more demanding work will be available for the more able students.  We thus make every effort to deal with each child as an individual.  Support for the least able includes close liaison with the Learning Support Department and a variety of other materials which are available to support the main scheme.
