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 is a great resource that inspires the children to rehearse their Maths skills at home, please encourage them to use the site.
Children in Year 2 to Year 6 have access to the TTRockstars website. TTRockstars is a carefully sequenced programme of times tables practice, which enables children to learn their times tables facts as they progress from a Wannabe to a Rock Legend! It helps children to make links between the multiplication and division facts to support them in many elements of mathematical calculation.
