Maths - Parents' information evening - October 2018

Thank you to all the parents, carers, children, teachers and governors who joined us for this fun and informative session sharing how we teach mathematics at St. Philip Howard. Mathematics is not taught 'the way it used to be' and we thank you for your interest and enthusiasm in finding out how your children are learning mathematics in our school.

The key messages are:

  • maths is all around us and is a part of every day life
  • maths is not a subject confined to a school book or classroom: it is a life skill
  • everyone, with hard work, can achieve success in maths
  • making mistakes is good because it means we are learning
  • we use lots of different equipment and drawing to help us 'see' the maths
  • speed is not important; fluency (deep of understanding) is
  • talking about our learning helps us to understand
  • getting stuck is good: it builds resilience 

Our aim, at St. Philip Howard, is to enable every child to secure the mathematical skills they need at primary school, to succeed at senior school and beyond: we thank you for your continued support in our endeavour.
