- Our Classes
We want to empower all children at Hexham First School to see themselves as mathematicians and to have a positive attitude towards the learning of mathematics alongside an enthusiasm for the subject. We want all of our children to believe that they can do maths.
At Hexham First our mathematics teaching is lively, engaging and involves a carefully planned blend of approaches that direct children’s learning. The pitch and pace of the work is sensitive to the rate at which children learn while ensuring expectations are kept high and progress is made by all children.
Our staff foster positive attitudes, fascination and excitement of discovery through the teaching and learning of mathematical concepts. Our children develop a ‘can do’ attitude and perceive themselves as mathematicians. At Hexham First we want to broaden children’s knowledge and understanding of how mathematics is used in the wider world. We want our children to use and understand mathematical language and recognise its importance as a language for communication and thinking.
