At Queens Park Academy we love maths and see it as an essential life skill. We are committed to ensuring that children have a positive and meaningful experience of mathematics throughout the school. We offer a curriculum that ensures essential knowledge and skills are gained whilst giving the children many opportunities to use and apply their mathematics through real life problem solving and mathematical investigations.
Learning and teaching is based around 7 key areas:
Each week the children are invited to achieve awards linked to the times tables. They receive a bronze badge for learning their 2x, 5x and 10x timetables. They get a silver one for learning their 3x, 4x, 6x and 8x tables. A gold badge is earned if they learn all the times tables to 12×12. The children are rewarded in the weekly celebration assembly.
