Mathematics at Cordwalles

Welcome to our Maths page!


At Cordwalles Junior School, we believe maths is an integral part of developing and enriching a child’s understanding of the world around them.  It is a subject which equips all learners with real life practical skills, enabling them to reason logically, solve problems and give them the ability to think in abstract ways.  We always look for opportunities for drawing mathematical experiences out of a wide range of children’s activities. Children will be given opportunities to explain their reasoning to ensure that they have a secure understanding.

At our school, we teach maths through ‘Busy Ants Maths’ by Collins. This ensures complete coverage of the 2014 Primary National Curriculum for Mathematics. Children are given opportunities to build on their prior knowledge and gain a deep understanding of mathematical concepts.
