Maths - How we teach Maths in our School


At St. James' CE First School and Nursery we use Inspire Maths to all of our children from the end of year R- 4.


This is scheme that moves through 3 stages of learning – Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract and enables the children to learn mathematical concepts thoroughly so they develop a better understanding on maths as a whole. 


In reception we use a variety of Numicon and concrete resources to help children process mathematical skills and we also include opportunities for Maths investigation through our play activities.
