Mathematics is important in everyday life and, with this in mind, the purpose of Mathematics at Eastcourt is to develop an ability to solve problems, to reason, to think logically and to work systematically and accurately. All children are challenged and encouraged to excel in Maths. New mathematical concepts are introduced using ‘Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract’ approaches enabling all children to experience hands-on learning when discovering new mathematical topics, allowing them to have models and images to aid their understanding. Arithmetic and basic maths skills are practised regularly to ensure key mathematical concepts are embedded and children can recall this information to see the links between topics in Maths.


Basic Maths skills are taught daily focussing on key mathematical skills including place value, the four operations and fractions.



As a result of our Maths teaching Eastcourt has:

Geo-set 1 Geo-set 2
