At Grimsdyke we understand that mathematics can teach us how to make sense of the world around us through developing a child’s ability to calculate, to reason and to solve problems. Mathematics can enable children to understand and appreciate relationships and patterns in both number and space in their everyday lives.
Numeracy lessons at Grimsdyke aim to develop enjoyment for the subject to enable the students to study it with confidence and a sense of achievement as well as understanding the relevance of the subject in day to day life. We strive for this at Grimsdyke through: Themed days, dedicated maths weeks, practical investigations, problem solving and reasoning days, cross-curricular learning approaches and engaging children through a wide variety of activities
We believe that every child has the potential to achieve and grow in confidence within Mathematics. We strive to unlock this enthusiasm and love of learning as the students move through the school.
