Mathematics at Great Bentley

At Great Bentley Primary School our aim is to inspire an intrinsic love of maths in our children. We value the importance of developing a range of mathematical skills.

Our daily arithmetic, times tables and problem solving encourages our children to make connections between different mathematical concepts and explain their reasoning behind problems that they face. We believe in the importance of making maths as hands on and practical as possible to give the children the opportunity to apply their learning to a real life context.

What we do to celebrate the children's achievements:
