Mathematics


At Wales Street Primary School, we believe that Mathematics provides a way of explaining and analysing the world around us. During the primary years, we aim to provide students with a deep understanding of mathematical concepts while developing fluency applying basic skills in a range of situations, including problem solving tasks. Teachers try to nurture an appreciation of the role of mathematics in driving technological change and the role it has in daily life. Students are encouraged to apply their mathematical knowledge and skills as lifelong learners.

Mathletics is a tool that is regularly used by teachers at Wales Street Primary School. Your child can participate in 'Live Mathletics' which encourages skill fluency, complete tasks set by the classroom teacher or consolidate their own learning by choosing lessons that they would like to complete.

The Mathletics website also has a fantastic parent blog with suggestions about how you can develop mathematical understandings and skills in every day life. http://www.3plearning.com/parent-blog/?_ga=2.80777623.1835329910.1518558227-1343330434.1512599271
