Maths is a high profile subject at St Mary’s, where alongside maths teaching and learning (from the 2014 National Curriculum) we also provide extra opportunities for Maths enjoyment! These opportunities including our ‘Number and Multiplication Madness’ challenges twice a year for all children, enrichment curriculum life skills sessions using timetables and money, Chippenham cluster maths events, regular cooking sessions for all children and recognition of mathematical achievements in celebration assemblies.
