Southfield Primary School

Maths through Story

As part of our contextualised curriculum all children from Nursery to Year 2 participate in our Maths Through Story niche curriculum. Bi-weekly children have the opportunity to exploit the concepts learnt in Mathematics lessons and use them through stimulus of a multi-layered picture book which deals with a specific real-life problem. The rich pictures and words support pupils in applying their mathematical understanding in a real-life situation. This approach allows children to remove any barriers from the study of mathematics and leads to enjoyment and engagement.
