The Maths curriculum we offer provides children with a variety of mathematical experiences. They practise their number operations and learn tables and number bonds. They apply their knowledge and skills to investigations and they have plenty of practical experience using mathematical apparatus. The Burghclere mathematical curriculum covers the main areas: use and application of maths, number, algebra, shape, space, measures and handling data.
There is an emphasis on the development of mental calculation strategies, where children are introduced to part pencil and paper methods as they get older, and formal methods in KS2.
