Maths at Cranborne is centred on children’s enjoyment, challenge and progress.
Maths can be viewed as a game. An agreed set of rules are followed; you can play with others or on your own; success often follows for players with a growth mindset; it is usually played for enjoyment; and there is generally a final outcome that can be reflected upon. The parallels for this can surely continue – what can you think of?
Everybody is aware of the importance of individual mathematical competency and this motivates our ethos to ‘play the game the best we can’. We are proud of our high standards of achievement in maths at CMS and are working to share our philosophy with other schools through establishing the ‘First School and Middle Maths Partnership’ and supporting the Queen Elizabeth and middle schools pyramid.
