Mathematics is important in everyday life. It is integral to all aspects of life and with this in mind, we endeavour to ensure that children develop a healthy and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them.
Mathematics helps children to make sense of the world around them through developing their ability to calculate, to reason and to solve problems. It enables children to understand and appreciate relationships and pattern in both number and space in their everyday lives. Through their growing knowledge and understanding, children learn to appreciate the contribution made by many cultures to the development and application of mathematics.
St. John’s mathematics curriculum follows Lancashire’s Learning Excellence Mathematics plans, White Rose Scheme and National Centre for Excellence on the Teaching of Mathematics in line with the requirements of the National Curriculum.
