Mathematics at Wheatfield
At Wheatfield we aim to give pupils the tools they need to be confident mathematicians. We provide a range of exciting experiences to engage our learners, whilst concentrating on the core skills of mathematics. The children learn skills in number, measure, shape and space and data handling, and how to apply these skills in other subjects such as science, computing and geography. The national curriculum places an emphasis upon calculation skills; we use our own Maths Planets programme to enable children to regularly practice basic number facts including multiplication facts. Problem solving is also developed, through practical activities, in a fun and enjoyable way.
We strongly believe that pupils should understand the mathematics that they are asked to do and not just be able to follow a process. They need to understand the value of the numbers they are using and know
