Mathematics and Numeracy


Numeracy is a skill for life, learning and work and at Mosshead we aim to provide meaningful and stimulating learning experiences which allow our pupils to develop this life skill.

Active Learning is a key component of our Mathematics and Numeracy programme of study, encouraging experiential learning and increased participation in the learning process. We also make good use of ICT to introduce, develop and consolidate skills in Mathematics and Numeracy.

Our pupils particularly enjoy exercising their mental agility playing Brain Training and Maths Training on the Nintendo DS consoles kindly donated by the PTA.

Written activities in Mathematics and Numeracy are derived from two main resources - Scottish Heinemann Mathematics for Primary 1 to 3, and Teejay Mathematics from around Primary 4 onwards, supplemented with homework and consolidation/ extension activities tailored to our pupils' needs.
