At King’s Somborne CE Primary school, we encourage the children to develop mathematical ways of thinking; to reason logically; to solve problems and to think in more abstract ways. During Early Years and Key Stage 1 pupils develop their knowledge and understanding of mathematics and number through practical activity, exploration and discussion.
During Key Stage 2 pupils use the number system more confidently. They move from counting reliably to calculating fluently with all four number operations.
All pupils will experience “real-life” maths and, where possible, will explore maths across the whole curriculum.

'I didn't do it like that when I was at school!'
Many parents often ask which methods we use in school to add, subtract, multiply and divide.
Please have a look at our method progression documents below which might help.
