Maths at Claremont


Claremont aims to provide a high-quality mathematics education that 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. There is a balance of fluency, problem solving and reasoning following KCC guidance of progression. The children make use of manipulatives (equipment), working walls, the outdoors and each other in order to develop their understanding. Teachers develop children's independent higher order thinking skills. When children are able to describe, represent, explain, and create their own example of a concept, idea or technique they are demonstrating 'mastery'. When children are able to solve problems of greater complexity, demonstrating creativity and imagination, independently explore and investigate, communicate results clearly, and systematically explain and generalise, they are working at greater depth.

Five Ways to Share Maths with Kids

Maths has moved on since many parents were at school. It's not about mechanically answering questions, it's about enjoying maths and being curious and learning about its beauty and power.

In this TED Talk, Dan Finkel explains how maths can be playful and is something to explore and enjoy.

Online Learning

Mathseeds (Year 1) https://mathseeds.co.uk
This is a web and app based learning resource. It teaches early mathematical
skills in highly structured lessons, and encourages children to learn because
it’s motivating and because it’s fun. Each child progresses through the online
lessons at their own pace and is rewarded for their achievements. All
lessons and activities can be repeated as often as necessary, so that children
can revise and consolidate skills. Mathematical knowledge and the ability to
solve problems are essential skills that all children need to be successful at school. Visit https://soapbox.wistia.com/videos/45uJw5ghHg
