Our Maths at Springhead

At Springhead, we ensure that our children have a depth of understanding in maths rather than just learning a 'method' without meaning.

We use maths manipulatives and pictorial representations objects to help with this before moving onto a more formal method.

Year 6 are learning about what a square number is by making square blocks from cubes.

Year 3 have been using the Base 10 equipment to explore place value

Year 4 are using place value counters to understand exchange in addition

Year 1 are using cubes to problem solve

Reception have been exploring numbers

Year 5 are using place value counters to revisit their understanding of exchange in subtraction

Year 2 work collaboratively in practical tasks and on explanations and reasoning

Foundation stage have been doing their maths in the outdoor area

We use working walls to help us to remember our learning and the key vocabulary.

We looked at the work of Kandinsky to identify vocabulary associated with geometry.
