Mathematics teaches children how to make sense of the world around them by developing a child’s ability to calculate, to reason and to solve problems. At Deykin Avenue, we aim to:


  • promote the children’s enjoyment and enthusiasm for maths
  • develop children’s ability to persevere and solve problems, through decision making and reasoning in a range of contexts
  • increase children’s confidence and competence with numbers and the number system and in all other areas of maths
  • help children to understand the importance of maths in everyday life


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.
