Mathematics is taught on a daily basis. Teaching methods include discussions between teacher and pupil, discussions between pupils, practical work, group activities, individual work, practice of basic skills and routines and investigative work. Each lesson begins with oral work and mental calculation; this is followed by the main teaching input and pupil activities. The main teaching points are consolidated in a plenary session in which pupils are given time to review, reflect, discuss and evaluate their work and learning. A progress assessment is carried out on a weekly basis which informs teachers of pupils who may need additional support with certain areas within the mathematics curriculum.
