Maths at Clyst Hydon – Subject co-ordinator: Mrs Tommons
At Clyst Hydon, we understand that Maths is an important tool for everyday life and with this in mind, we endeavour to ensure that children develop a healthy and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics, that will stay with them throughout their lives. We aim to develop a love of learning, resilience and creativity.
We know that deep mathematical understanding develops through the use of concrete (practical) apparatus, following this with pictorial representations of methods and then using abstract ways of recording calculations. We spend time developing our children’s ‘fluency’ in their calculations, deepening their understanding through daily opportunities for ‘reasoning’ and ‘problem-solving’. At each stage in our classroom lessons, all children are exposed to challenge, deepening their understanding further.
As a school, we subscribe to Times Tables Rock Stars, a very popular and highly-acclaimed learning platform, where our children have fun practising and mastering their times tables. The children have their own logins and so they can enjoys practising their times tables both at school and at home.
