Mathematics teaches children how to make sense of the world around them through developing their ability to calculate, reason and solve problems. It enables children to understand relationships and patterns in both number and space in their everyday lives. Through their growing knowledge and
understanding, children learn to appreciate the contribution made by many cultures to the development and application of mathematics.
These booklets have been written to inform you about the teaching of maths at Bishop Wood School and how you can help us to help your child. Thank you for taking the time to read them.
