Mathemagic

To meet the more demanding needs of the mathematics curriculum, we have started teaching 'Mathemagic' lessons every Friday. Instead of purely teaching skills, these maths lessons will involve applying skills the children have been taught to a range of investigations and puzzles.

The children are encouraged to use their reasoning skills to solve these investigations.

As well as this, children are encouraged to follow the P-E-E approach to solving investigations - to Point (solve and point out the answer), Evidence (show the calculation, or evidence, that they are correct) and Explain (reason verbally, or in writing, their approaches towards working). This has proved successful with our pupils.
