Hello, my name is Mrs Palumbo and I have the pleasure in leading Maths across the school. I am also the Deputy Head Teacher and a Specialist Leader in Education for Maths.
At New Swannington we aim to give your children the best start in maths and the children have access to a maths curriculum that is broad, balanced, challenging and accessible to all. We also want the children to enjoy maths and we ensure our lessons are innovative and creative. We ensure we always make links in our lessons and build on previous learning through regular flashback work.
We teach the Mastering approach in maths, which means pupils acquiring a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject.
We are pleased to announce that the children in EYFS and Key Stage 1 will be taking part in the Mastering Number Work Group from the Autumn Term in conjunction with the NCTEM and East Midlands South Maths Hub. This is a year long programme aiming at strengthening the understanding of number and fluency with number facts among the children in the first three years of school. We are extremely excited and proud to be taking part in this project.
Please feel free to contact me via the school office if you have any questions about the teaching of maths or would like any further support.
