Welcome to Maths at Moor Hey School
Our approach to Maths:
At Moor Hey Special School, we believe in developing a positive attitude and a love of learning towards Maths. We hope to raise the profile of Maths through links with ICT and through other curriculum areas such as Science and Literacy. We endeavour to make our Maths curriculum exciting and include aspects of enquiry and investigation to help pupils become independent learners.
We aim to provide a curriculum that allows children to become confident problem solvers and to be able to reason and think logically (and not just in their Maths lessons) so that they are prepared for the real world. We also hope to increase enjoyment and understanding of mental maths by using a friendly, competitive approach through our use of Apps and displays.
We want children to have an awareness of the relevance of Maths in the real world and aim to link this within our curriculum. We hope that in every class each child will be able explain their understanding and be able to influence a wider thinking approach to Maths.
