The Palterton Curriculum - Mathematics
Mathematics introduces children to concepts, skills and thinking strategies that are essential in everyday life. Mathematical thinking and understanding underpin learning and development in the wider curriculum, and therefore it is a central element of learning in our school.
Our mathematics curriculum is based on the National Curriculum for England for Years 1 to 6. We use the Foundation Stage Development Matters document to support planning of mathematical learning in the Foundation Stage (Renishaw Class).
