Maths at Constantine School is dynamic, practical, exciting, creative and challenging. Teachers work hard to match what we learn in Maths to our creative curriculum, as well as bringing the wider school such as the school garden, technology and everyday life. Mr Anjari is now a Maths Specialist Teacher and working with the other teachers on using open-ended activities such as games to encourage the children to talk, explain and discuss. We want them to come up with their own questions and lines of inquiry. We aim to make learning happen, and make it fun.
For parents who are looking to help their child at home please take a look at the videos produced by Werrington Primary School on how to use the methods that we teach in school. They are placed in an order that reflects the progression through the four operations as the children move through the school. We are very grateful to Werrington for allowing us to share the resources that they have made, and hope that they will help all parents, especially those who said that such a resource would be helpful.
For parents of children in Years 1 and 2, the ‘Maths No Problem’ videos for parents may also be helpful.
If you would like to discuss anything further, please do not hesitate to contact either of the Maths Co-ordinators, Mr Anjari or Miss Bidgood.
