 Maths Lessons

Gaps Based Learning

After an assessment children will work though any learning gaps in every math topic. All children will work through the same topic, for example 'time'. However some children may work through o’clock times during the lesson whilst others will work through problems solving involving time.

Once they have completed their gaps they will then begin working through their own maths booklets which also covers units from Non-Verbal Reasoning. These booklets will help your child regardless of whether they decide to take the 11plus exams or not.

Maths Topics Covered

Addition, Algebra, Decimals, Division, Factors, Fractions, Geometry, Mean, Median, Mode, Money problems, Multiplication, Ordering numbers, Percentages, Probability, Ratios, Roman numerals, Rounding, Subtraction, Shape and Space, Time, Weights & Measurements.
