We teach children to apply arithmetic fluently to problems. They learn to understand and use measures, make estimates and sense check their work. We teach them to collect, present and analyse data.
The children have many opportunities to apply their skills across the curriculum. Confidence in numeracy and other maths skills helps children in other subjects too. We encourage them to practice whenever they have the chance. With practice they learn to reason mathematically.
