At Stanton School we teach mathematics using the Maths Makes Sense scheme created by Richard Dunne which is in line with the New National Curriculum.
The Maths Makes Sense scheme is a powerful learning system which combines concrete objects, actions and vocabulary in a cycle of learning and assessment which enables children to become lifelong mathematicians. It avoids and prevents misconceptions and ensures children enjoy every maths lesson! Maths Makes Sense gives our children a consistent approach, high expectations, fluency with number and a deeper understanding of maths.
The careful planning of maths at Stanton School enables teaching to develop the children’s skills in the following areas:
We carefully plan to provide the children with a wealth of purposeful and interesting activities which give the children the opportunity to widen their knowledge of mathematics as well as apply the skills they already have in different situations.
