Maths lessons at Illogan School are flexible in their approach so that the most effective methods are chosen to enable all children to learn. We know that to gain the most from their education children need consistently good teaching everyday supported by resources such as clear models and images, whiteboards and appropriate use of ICT. Assessment for Learning will be key to the process.

We follow Hamilton Trust Maths planning supported by the Abacus scheme. Teachers are expected to amend planning in order to anticipate potential misunderstandings and, when appropriate, they include extra extension and challenge to the planned activities.

Problem solving and investigative maths is taught throughout the school through the use of various BEAM (Be A Mathematician) resources including ‘Maths Buzz’ and ‘We can do it!’.
