Maths is an important part of our curriculum. A new national curriculum has recently been introduced that highlights the importance maths plays in everyday life. We aim to encourage the children at Hollybush to become confident in using a range of maths skills, such as quickly recalling their times tables. We try to make maths as fun as possible by teaching the children using a range of practical methods.

Basic Skills

At Hollybush we recognise the importance of learning ‘the basics’ in maths. In each year group there is a list of skills that we would like children to acquire linked to the expectations in the new national curriculum. The children know about these skills and are given a chance to practice them regularly in school.
