In KS1, maths is taught primarily through the Abacus scheme. We use practical and written methods and a wide range of resources to help children to understand. Children are taught in small groups according to ability.
In KS2, teachers create their own plans using Abacus as a base. We teach in groups according to ability, with some groups as small as 6 children. We teach formal methods of calculation from Year 3. Our overall emphasis is on the ability to understand and solve mathematical problems.
We also run a large number of pre-learning, catch-up and extension groups to ensure that all children achieve their mathematical potential.
