Mathematics is a powerful tool which enables us to make sense of our world and is taught each day here at The Vineyard. We aim to equip children with the necessary skills and understanding within the New Curriculum and the domains of number, measurement, geometry and statistics. Subsequently teachers look to find opportunities, both within these lessons and in other areas of learning, to apply the knowledge and skills they have learnt to ‘real life’ contexts. Our aim is to enable children to tackle practical tasks, to problem solve and to develop their powers of reasoning and logical thinking through the exploration of mathematical structures.
