Teaching Maths at John Clifford
We aim to teach children in a way that ensures they understand the subject, rather than just being able to follow a set of instructions. To help your child with this we use various resources to support their learning. Below is a guide to how we teach addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Concrete – we use physical resources such as cubes.
Pictorial – we use diagrams
Abstract – numbers are used
Welcome to the Maths section of the John Clifford School website.
Maths Week: Maths is Everywhere!
It was fantastic to see so many of our parents in school for Maths Week. Monday's Information Workshops were attended by over 70 parents and hopefully they were of use for an understanding of the Mastery Approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics; maths at John Clifford, including use of the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract approach and some ideas and strategies for supporting children with maths at home.
The Thursday Open Morning for Parents in school was also extremely well attended and there was a real buzz around school, thank you. The feel moving from classroom to classroom of parents, children and teachers absorbed in maths learning was exciting, with what better experts than the children themselves?!
Attached below are the presentations from both Information Workshops, the handout resources that were available to take away and some video and activity strategies and resources for supporting children with the learning of times tables at home.
