At Saltdean, we encourage children to enjoy maths so that they feel secure enough to have a go at problem solving and, most importantly, we help them to see how this learning is applied to real life situations so they will be able to use the things they've learned when they are older.
We use a Maths Mastery Approach where the children are encouraged to develop fluency and reasoning through a concrete pictorial abstract (CPA) approach. In lessons, children use Maths - No Problem! textbooks and workbooks, as well as concrete resources to ensure a depth of understanding.
In June 2017, we became an accredited Maths - No Problem! School. We are very proud of this achievement as we are currently the only school in Sussex with this accolade.
Supporting your child at home
In Key stage 2, children use Mathletics to continue their learning at home. Each child should have a Username and Password to enable them to access any homework set by their teacher, as as well as take part in maths quizzes against children from all over the world!
