Latest News: Pupils arriving at school for 8:45am each day can really Make A Difference. During this M.A.D time pupils are guided in self reviewing their work from the day before or completing a variety of activities which may be the foundation for activities undertaken later on in the day. We would be very grateful if pupils could arrive in class at 8:45am to allow them to make the most of this time.

Maths

 

Maths at Great Moor is led by Mr Turner.

Our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum and the Age Related Expectations.  We intend to make children independent mathematicians, become fluent in their choice of strategies and have a deep understanding of concepts. We  teach mathematical concepts using a variety of visual and practical methods, then teach problem solving skills and give children opportunities to apply their knowledge of various concepts to a variety of mathematical and reasoning problems. We believe that making connections between concepts are important for children to grasp e.g. teaching reading scales at the same time as numberlines, converting metric measures at the same time as dividing/multiplying by 10,100 and 1000 ect.  In addition, there are many  cross curricular links e.g. budgeting and designing a motocross track (Geography) and real life connections. 

By having a range of activities that challenge pupils, we want  children to enjoy this subject.
