Maths Curriculum Statement
At Draycott Community Primary School, we aim to inspire enjoyment of maths, developing children’s understanding through an exciting curriculum.
Maths concepts are introduced using concrete resources, such as Dienes apparatus and multilink cubes, followed by images, diagrams and drawings. This leads in turn to the more familiar, numerical number sentences in calculations. We also use a range of exciting online resources, such as Times Table Rock Stars, to engage the children. Another recent addition is Maths of the Day, an exciting way to teach and enhance children’s understanding of maths with a very active, hands-on approach.
We work hard to raise levels of attainment for every child and to promote effective methods in the teaching of mathematics, strengthening home/school links at every opportunity.
