Our Maths Lead is Mrs Lyndsey Kerswell.
Maths at Abbotskerswell Primary School is taught with a mastery approach. Children take part in daily maths lessons which are planned to meet the needs of every child. Children will use concrete resources to explore new ideas and develop fluency in different areas. They will then use what they have learnt to solve problems and improve their understanding. Children will start the year by revising number and place value skills before moving onto extending their knowledge of different calculations. Throughout the academic year, children develop their understanding of fractions, measurement, geometry, and statistics and in Year 6 algebra and ratio too. We encourage parents to practise key mathematical skills at home, such as weighing, telling the time and learning multiplication tables.
