Our focus at Boyne Hill in the teaching of mathematics is to develop pupils' confidence and mental fluency with whole numbers, counting and place value. This will involve working with numerals, words and the four operations, including with practical resources, for example, concrete objects and measuring tools. At this stage, pupils should develop their ability to recognise, describe, draw, compare and sort different shapes and use the related vocabulary. Teaching will also involve using a range of measures to describe and compare different quantities such as length, mass, capacity/volume, time and money. They will be taught to question and make links rather than follow set methods and to see how Maths is used in, and can influence, the wider world.
