Welcome to the Maths page. We work together to ensure that the children at Nevill Road Junior School can access a broad, balanced and creative curriculum through every subject area.
The first 'Coffee and Calculation' sessions were held last week for Year 5 and 6 parents, which were a huge success. The information provided on the evening can be found below.
Our first ASPIRE day was linked to Maths Problem solving and had an escape room theme. The children had a wonderful time trying to crack the codes in order to complete the challenges. The staff also enjoyed dressing up as characters from each room, which were linked to different films. Can you work out which ones they were by looking at the photos?
We are delighted to announce that Mrs Jordan has become a maths mastery specialist and is now working with five schools across Stockport to develop the approach. In November she visited Shanghai, where she worked along side maths mastery experts in two schools. She has been working with staff at Nevill Road to share her expertise with excellent results. The Infant school staff are currently working with our year 3 teachers as part of a maths teacher research group, to develop consistent approaches to teaching maths across both schools.
We recently hosted the Maths Hub N1 recruitment event and spoke to Headtechers and maths specialists across the North West about maths mastery and the positive impact it has had upon the children's ability to use mathematical vocabulary correctly to explain their understanding.
