As my favourite subject, I am looking forward to some exciting and very challenging lessons in Mathematics this year. The main focus will be on pupils developing their problem-solving skills, their confidence, and their willingness to try things and accept that things can go wrong! Maths is a subject that requires pupils to be willingly to try new things and push themselves. Sadly, so many people have their confidence knocked in Maths and this can cause them to dislike the subject. I intend to create a class environment where pupils love the challenges and understand that mistakes and difficulties are to be enjoyed.
In this half term, pupils will be studying:
- Number and Place Value,
- Formal addition and subtraction,
- Formal multiplication and division,
