MATHS IN THE MOMENT

Maths is how we make sense of the world and maths is everywhere but do we always see it? We want our children to become confident, life-long mathematicians, full of curiosity and the capacity to ask and answer questions. For this reason, maths needs to be part of their thinking throughout the day. Children don’t need to know they are learning maths in order to be learning maths.
