At Clearwell School we acknowledge the importance of mathematics.  As times tables are fundamental to success in maths, all children are given a login to Doodle to help them to practice their tables in an engaging manner. Within our lessons we have fluency questions where we ascertain whether or not children and do the calculations and then reasoning and problem solving to encourage them to apply the knowledge and skills gained.  We make active use of Numicon to support children of all abilities. We want to demonstrate its usefulness in real life situations and its power as a language of communication. We encourage pupils to have a positive attitude towards the subject, display low anxiety levels and be confident when using and applying their knowledge and skills.
