Mathematics involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces, and measures.

At Beddington Infants’ School, we develop mathematical understanding through:
developing key mathematical skills with which to make sense of the world around them.
developing the ability and confidence to think independently, clearly and logically.
understanding and enjoying mathematics through a broad and balanced curriculum.
understanding and using a wide range of vocabulary to explain their thinking.
being encouraged to use and apply their mathematical knowledge and develop mathematical reasoning through a wide range of activities including mental calculations and investigations.
making progress to the highest level of which they are capable, finding success and confidence in mathematical learning.
Maths is integrated across the learning environment every day in meaningful contexts helping them to develop into confident mathematicians.
