We recognise that numeracy is an important life skill. Being numerate means being able to reason with numbers and to solve a variety of problems in everyday life.
Numeracy skills are needed in every subject in school, but we are also focusing specific skills during a numeracy session each week.
We have a termly focus: Autumn – Time, Spring – Multiplication, Summer – Money
Students will complete tasks with their pastoral teacher and can also access online programs both in school and at home.
We have purchased this program as it has been proven to help children make big improvements in both their ability and confidence in maths. We encourage our students to use the website every day. Doodle Maths will learn where our students' strengths are, and areas to improve, and then builds an individual program just for them. Each student has their own personal login which records their progress.
All students have unlimited access to Study Ladder. This is an online platform to improve Numeracy skills through quizzes and games. This can be accessed at home through a computer or mobile device. Each student has their own personal login which records their progress.
