We love Maths at Collierley Primary School!
Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject. At Collierley Primary School we aim to ensure that children are equipped with the knowledge and growth mindset to solve mathematical problems within practical situations by using a mastery approach to teaching. Maths is celebrated in school each week with a ‘Magical Mathematician’ certificate awarded to a child in each year group during celebration assembly.
We have celebrated Maths this term by taking part in the NSPCC Number Day. The whole school took part in maths activities for the day. This included working with other classes to solve problems and create maths games. Check out our twitter feed for pictures of this great event!
