Newtown School

We care about our learning, each other and our world.


Mathematics introduces children to concepts, skills and thinking strategies that are essential in everyday life and support learning across the curriculum. It helps children make sense of the numbers, patterns and shapes they see in the world around them, offers ways of handling data in an increasingly digital world and makes a crucial contribution to their development as successful learners.

At Newtown we aim to ensure that all children have an understanding of number by handling objects and using numbers in real life situations in their play and with counters, numicon and money.  We aim for children to delight in using mathematics to solve a problem, especially when it leads them to an unexpected discovery or new connections.
