At St Mark’s Primary School we love maths and see it as an essential life skill. We are committed to ensuring that children have a positive and meaningful experience of mathematics throughout the school. We offer a curriculum that secures essential knowledge and skills whilst giving the children many opportunities to use and apply their mathematical skills across the curriculum, through real life problem solving and mathematical investigations.
'Children are confident in applying their skills in Maths.'

Every child in the school is signed up to the award winning Mathletics website and given a personal password to give them access. This interactive website is full of helpful guidance, games and challenges. Mathletics as it is a great resource that inspires the children to rehearse their maths skills at home, please encourage them to use the site. We celebrate childrens Mathletics achievements during our Friday assembly.
Children in Year 2 to Year 6 have access to the ttrockstars website. Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice, which enable children to learn their times tables facts as they progress from a Wannabe to a Rock Legend!
