We encourage children to ask as well as answer mathematical questions and give explanations. Children will have opportunities to use a range of resources to support their mathematical development, for example, number lines, number squares and practical apparatus.
In all classes, there are children with a range of mathematical abilities. We ensure that we provide appropriate learning opportunities for all children, whilst ensuring that there is a good level of challenge. Children have opportunities to work independently, in pairs and in small groups.
