Numeracy Skills

Our Mathematical skills are more relevant today than ever before. In a world where IT positions are continually on the rise and in a future where the majority of jobs haven’t been created yet, we must prepare our children adequately.

Primary school is the time to start. Children in St Pats are shown, supported and encouraged to think creatively and critically. Children are enabled to analyse data and problems, to work with their peers to think outside the box and to devise solutions. Should these fail, they critique their work, edit and try again.

Our current school focus is on Problem Solving. Children are regularly provided with Word Problems which they must solve using strategies taught in class.

Children also take part in Maths stations, daily counting games, tables games, interactive whiteboard games and are provided with in class support and withdrawal.

Due to our large stock of Maths resources, children are also able to learn by working with physical materials for every subject.
