Every lesson is divided into sections that involve plenty of discovery, sharing, collaboration, practice and reflection. Children are encouraged to solve problems each day through the use of concrete resources, pictorial representations and abstract thinking.
At the heart of this programme is the idea that all children can achieve and be successful mathematicians with the right growth mindset. It promotes five child friendly characters, each with their own positive skill set, to inspire and motivate children.
We have adopted these characters within school as our characteristics of a mathematician. Keep an eye out for our characters all around our school environment.
