At LIPA Primary School we are committed to ensuring that children have a positive and meaningful experience of Mathematics. We offer a curriculum that secures essential knowledge and skills, whilst giving the children many opportunities to use and apply their mathematical skills across the curriculum, through real life problem solving and mathematical investigations.
In the Early Year Foundation Stage (EYFS) children follow the Foundation Stage Curriculum for Mathematics, as they make progress towards and where appropriate beyond the Early Learning Goals. Areas covered are: Number and Shape, Space and Measures. Children are given the opportunity to develop their understanding of number, measurement, pattern and shape and space through a combination of short, formal teaching as well as a range of planned structured play situations, where there is plenty of scope for exploration.
