Numeracy is taught every day at St Mary's. The lessons are 50 minutes long. All lessons start with a 10 minute 'mental warm-up'. This is anything from counting one more or less in year R to times tables in year 2. During the main lesson the children are informed of what is expected of them and their learning progress to give them ownership of their own learning. Key skills are taught, practised and then applied to real life situations.
Work is assessed following each lesson and from this further learning needs are planned for. Children are challenged and supported according to their individual learning needs. The child's individual progress is tracked by the class teacher according to Surrey guidelines.
