The Teaching of Mathematics
At Hinguar we teach maths on a daily basis. The mathematical techniques and methods children are taught in class are based on giving them a secure understanding of mathematics and helping them to articulate this through explaining and discussing their work. Regular opportunities are incorporated within the lessons to develop, apply and extend their mathematical knowledge.
The school has an agreed Calculation Policy which ensures consistency through each year models and calculations to be taught. Please see Calcuation Policy below.
Further strategies to reinforce,consolidate and extend their understanding is developed through the application of mathematical skills through other areas of the curriculum.
To aid quick recall of number bonds and times tables we encourage our children to practice these through homework and the incentive of achieving a Hinguar TimesTable Award. For further information of the content of this award please see details below.
