At Goodmayes Primary School there is a daily mathematics lesson for all children. Lessons include whole class, group and individual work. Each year group plans a Problem solving lesson at least once a week as well as regular activities in daily lessons. Learning through a clear progression of mental and written methods, children develop understanding and the skills to carry out calculations independently. Children are encouraged to discuss their methods of working, ideas and reasoning and share their expertise with others. We want children to become confident problem solvers who enjoy the challenge of a new investigation.
