Maths at Monkwray
At Monkwray, we are aware that mathematics is integral to all aspects of life and with this in mind we endeavour to ensure that children develop a healthy and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them. We understand that mathematics is a unique language, which enables us to compare, classify, order, sort, measure and make logical sense of the world around us. Our aim is to equip all pupils with the skills and confidence to solve a range of problems through developing fluency and diving deeper with mathematical reasoning.
Be brave enough to ask questions to help you understand.
Be brave enough to persevere when at first something new seems tricky
Be brave enough to share your thoughts and ideas
Be brave enough to challenge yourself and “dive deeper”
Be bright and “dive deeper” with your mathematical understanding
Be bright and prove your solutions
Be bright and make links
Be bright and explain your chosen methods
Be you and celebrate your successes
Be you and use what you need to help you understand
Be you and recognise and understand your mathematical strengths
Be you and be proud to say, “I can do maths.”

Times Tables Rockstars Competition
Earlier this year, Miss Styles selected a group of children from Years 3 – 6 to take part in an inter-school competition which was held at St Begh’s Junior School. The children raced against the clock to display their skills and accuracy with the times tables. All of the children were fantastic and we were delighted to come away with a trophy as Jack (Y6) won 1st place in the Years 5 and 6 section for his skills and accuracy.
