Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

Number Day 2021
We had a fantastic number day today. All children played bingo in assembly for some great prizes. Check out the pictures below to see what we did around school.
In KS2, we have a new TT champion! Oliver (Year5) defeated Harrison (year 6) in the grand final. Special mention to Bradley in Year 4 for defeating children much older than himself!
