Maths

Mathematics is a tool for everyday life. It is a whole network of concepts and relationships which provide a way of viewing and making sense of the world. It is used to analyse and communicate information and ideas and to tackle a range of practical tasks and real life problems. It also provides the materials and means for creating new imaginative worlds to explore.

At Peel Common we will support our children to:

  • develop confidence in their mathematical ability and an awareness of the fascination of maths;
  • become proficient, competent and confident with a range of mathematical knowledge, concepts and skills;
  • develop the ability to solve problems, to reason, to think logically and to work systematically and with accuracy;
  • develop and use imagination, initiative, flexibility and deep mathematical thinking as effective problem solvers;
  • effectively choose, use and apply mathematics across the curriculum and in real life.

Some children may need extra support to help them achieve their potential and so we offer three intervention programmes; Every Child Counts, First Class @ Number, and the 5 Minute Number Box and MyTY Maths.
