Maths Lessons
Please select your child's year below for further information.
Gaps Based Learning
Lessons start of with an assessment and then children will work though their learning gaps or learning goals. 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 workbooks which also covers units from NonVerbal Reasoning. These booklets will help your child regardless of whether they decide to take the 11plus exams or not.
