In maths lessons at Sauncey Wood, children are taught to work mathematically through learning skills within number, measurement, geometry and statistics. Teachers follow the National Curriculum programmes of study for each year group, and build on objectives which are revisited each term to ensure skills are firmly embedded. Maths learning is presented in a variety of contexts and cross curricular links are made regularly.
