At St. Catherine’s we have written our own framework for teaching mathematics which has now been updated in line with the new curriculum.  This allows us to ensure a clear and embedded understanding of the four rules and their uses.  We re-visit the methods a number of times during the year, alongside teaching shape, measures and data handling.  This constant revisiting enables children to have experience of the topic in a number of different ways so that they can truly internalise the concept and begin to use it across the curriculum.
