There is a sharp focus on teaching maths for mastery and the series is designed to improve the maths confidence of both learners and teachers.

The whole school shared their learning during Maths week in a special assembly. Here are a selection of anchor charts, created by our children, based on key learning during the week. They are used to remind us how we solved a problem and some of them will be placed on our Maths wall for children to use in their future learning.
