By the time the children join Prep 3, they have a solid grounding in basic mathematical concepts and are ready for more challenging problems and theories.
Maths lessons take place in the dedicated Maths Room and in the Computer Suite. While the work is more challenging, the approach is always to make maths stimulating and engaging, working with the children’s enthusiasm to get the best results.
In the Lent term the whole school takes part in Number Day, where the children have lots of fun participating in all sorts of practical maths activities, and raise money for the NSPCC. Also in this term, Prep 3 children visit Lechlade Garden Centre in order to practise their maths in a real-life situation.
Our children are always up for a challenge, so we have no trouble encouraging them to take part in Mathematical challenges – this year a Prep 5 team have competed at Summer Fields and a Prep 6 team took part in the Monkton Maths and Science Day.
