Maths at Monkspath Junior & Infant School
All our children at Monkspath have the opportunity to experience the fun and enjoyment of learning mathematics, often practically during lively and engaging lessons which are focused and planned to meet the needs of all learners.
Mathematics can provide learners with powerful ways to describe, analyse and change the world. Within the teaching of numeracy children can learn and enhance valuable skills such as logical reasoning, problem solving and the ability to think in abstract ways which are key to the way we look at learning as a whole at Monkspath.
Throughout history many cultures have contributed to the development and understanding of mathematics. By providing the children with the skills and opportunities to develop their cognitive skills coupled with problem solving ability they will hopefully be contributing to the next stage of understanding further transcending the cultural boundaries.
The world of tomorrow will be very different from today. Major changes in new technology, population growth and the environment will necessitate that people with relevant skills and knowledge will be better equipped to adapt to this uncertain future.
It is our role at Monkspath to ensure that the children are provided with not just the basic skills of mathematics, which are so vital, but also that they are challenged to pursue their own lines of enquiry further helping to develop their cognitive skills.
Our vision is to show children and adults the importance of mathematical understanding across the curriculum and how vital these skills are for life opportunities.
