At St Mary’s Bentworth, we believe that every child deserves to have a positive attitude towards Maths, experience the awe and wonder of the subject and develop confidence as a Mathematician.
For calculation, we use concrete, pictorial and abstract methods (as appropriate) to support the teaching and learning of the different strategies. In maths lessons, children work through the core elements of maths: fluency, reasoning and problem solving. All three are interwoven throughout all our maths learning, to support children in their mastery of different concepts.

The Pupil Council's role in school is all about school improvement. Part of the School Improvement Plan in 2018-2019 was a focus on mental maths, so they organised a Maths Morning!
Pupil Council arranged a 'Maths Bee' (mental maths challenge) and lots of other fun mental maths activities for the children. They received fantastic feedback about this event and it was a great morning of learning!
