Marlpool Junior School



At Marlpool junior school we believe that every child is capable of improving their understanding of Mathematics and  becoming a confident Mathematical thinker. Mathematics is taught through a "mastery" approach, which emphasises the importance of noticing connections between all areas of the Maths curriculum and encouraging  children to explain their reasoning. 



Mental calculation

Confidence in mental arithmetic is the key to being a successful Mathematician. Regular practice in our ability to remember key number bonds and multiplication tables enables us to improve the accuracy of our mental calculations.

Our Mental calculation policy and scheme of work provides examples of these key facts for each year group.
