Maths School Year Planner

Mathematics at Catherine Junior School.

At CJS, our goals in Mathematics are to enable children:

- to have a deep understanding of mathematical concepts

- to apply their knowledge to solve problems and investigate questions

- to enjoy the challenge of Maths and have a positive attitude to learning

- to enjoy their work and to develop a life-long appreciation of Mathematics


Our lessons are carefully designed using the Primary Mathematics National Curriculum as a foundation, and teachers draw on a variety of supplementary resources to create interesting, challenging and purposeful lessons.


The atmosphere in a Maths lesson is focused, and teachers work hard to foster a positive Growth Mindset to Maths, valuing mistakes and encouraging hard thinking and good questioning.
