We are mathematicians at St Margaret Ward.

We teach Mathematics because it introduces children to concepts, skills and thinking strategies that are essential in everyday life and it supports children in other learning across the breadth of the curriculum.

It helps children make sense of the numbers, patterns and shapes they see in the world around them, offers ways of handling data in an increasingly digital world and makes a crucial contribution to their development as successful learners.

Maths is a truly universal skill, our use of technology and maths enables children to work with others around the world, providing them with motivations and competitions they might not otherwise access. Maths at SMW increases a growth mindset way of thinking about problems, the joy of maths is understanding that some problems cannot be solved.
