At Kensington Community Primary School we aim to provide the pupils with a mathematics curriculum which will produce individuals who are numerate, literate, creative, independent, inquisitive, enquiring and confident. We also aim to provide stimulating environments and experiences so that pupils can develop their mathematical skills to their full potential whilst at the same time developing a love of learning and an appreciation of the wonderful patterns underpinning the world of mathematics.
Maths is spreading far and wide at Kensington Community primary, which has been recognised by our gold status in the Liverpool Counts Quality Mark. If you would like to take a look at some of the fun activities we have participated in, then please click the link below and take a look at our LCQM page.
The year 5 and 6 classes completed the 'Christmas Fayre Challenge' where they were given their own stall at the Christmas fayre and a budget of £20. They had to plan, purchase and create an item to sell with the aim of making the biggest profit. The money raised was donated to Whitechapel centre to support the homeless over Christmas.
The annual Kensington Grand National is a collaboration of physical and mathematical ability. Each class faced the obstacles with the aim of completing the course in the fastest time. Throughout the course, the children answered maths questions - counting, measure, shape and number; the faster they reached the answer, the faster their overall time. It was a close race but we are pleased to announce that year 1 were the fastest year group and will be enjoying a trip to Aintree racecourse where they will have a behind the scenes exploration.
It has been great to see so many parents attend our school strategy mornings in maths, as we have taken a look at the different strategies we use throughout our school to support our children. This helps to build continuity for our children as they are learning the same strategies in school and at home.
