Mathematics at Beatrice Tate School is taught as a specific lesson and across the curriculum in all Key Stages. Our curriculum is designed to meet the individual needs of all students and covers attainment through the P Scales into National Curriculum levels.
The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
Within the Mathematics curriculum, pupils develop their skills within the areas of number, estimation, calculation, shape, space and measurement. However we ensure that pupils also have the opportunity to transfer, practice and develop their skills in practical, real life situations, for example shopping trips. Mathematical understanding is a fundamental life skill.
As part of the Mathematics curriculum, we use a wide range of approaches to enhance their teaching and individual learning: from a range of multi-sensory approaches and techniques, interactive ICT and apps, to the use of â€˜Numiconâ€™ and the â€˜Pound Plus Money Programâ€™.
At Beatrice Tate School, mathematics will be taught through our current mathematical themes at a level appropriate to our pupils needs. Curriculum Maps will be updated during 2014-15.
