MISS. S. RENNIE
At Eskdale Academy we see Maths very much as a multi-discipline, cross curricular, interconnected subject which should encourage creativity.
As much revolves around the discussion about Maths between talk partners as it does the completion of calculations. We want the children to see Mathematics as being relevant to their world and applicable to everyday life as well as being something that they will need as they move on through their school life and ultimately to the world of employment.
To that end, a high-quality, inter-related and creative Maths experience should be one that develops the children’s ability to think mathematically and one which allows them to apply the tools to which they have been exposed in a variety of ways.
