'At LJS we believe that everybody ‘can do’ Maths. This allows children to be confident, independent mathematicians prepared to make mistakes and learn from them."
Welcome to the Maths page. As a school, we share the belief that Mathematics is a creative subject that is essential to everyday life. Our Maths Curriculum embraces a whole school approach to ensure that all pupils can move fluently between mathematical ideas throughout their four years at LJS.
Our aim is that pupils develop their fluency to enable them to provide reasoning and solve problems.
The expectation is that the majority of pupils will move through the programmes of study at broadly the same pace. Years 3, 4 and 5 are taught in their class groups whilst Year 6 are currently taught in attainment groups. Pupils who grasp concepts rapidly will be challenged through being offered challenging problems to deepen their understanding.

We held a Maths Day on Thursday 22nd November and what a success it was! Take a look in the year groups above to see the many mathematical activities that the children took part in.
