Bringing Learning to Life through Mathematics

Mathematics is all around us, in everything we do. It is the building block for everything in our daily lives, including mobile devices, money, time, cooking, art, engineering, architecture and even sports. Mathematics is the science that deals with the logic of shape, quantity and arrangement. We aim for our learners to become maths-positive problem-solvers and to have ideas, to develop vocabulary and reasoning skills and so better understand mathematical concepts to be able to participate within the real world around them.

Landgate School offers a well-resourced, flexible, multi-sensory long-term plan with a focus on Mastery in Maths to ensure that all our Learners develop their understanding of mathematical vocabulary, concepts, skills and strategies through small and coherent steps within relevant contexts. Learners engage in stimulating maths activities within the classroom, outdoor environment, through cross-curricular subjects, community visits and theme days. Teachers use their expertise to personalise content and strategies to provide the right level of challenge so every learner can develop resilience, confidence and fluency in using the fundamentals of Mathematics.
