At Barrs Court Primary School we teach challenging and engaging daily Maths lessons across the school that aim to provide children with the skills they will need in everyday life. Children develop accurate mental maths skills through our Big Maths sessions at the beginning of every lesson. We ensure challenge and support for all children from their individual starting points through our ‘Chilli Challenges’ and through the use of apparatus and pictorial representations. Children develop and demonstrate their understanding through reasoning and real-life problem solving.
Here are some of the teaching tools we use in school to provide the children with the skills needed to meet their age related expectations. These websites are also accessed by the children at home so that they can practise their mental arithmetic in a fun and engaging way.
