Welcome to the Maths page. We take great care at Sutton Green in the teaching of mathematics from early years through to year 6 and preparing children for every stage of their learning. Our emphasis is on problem solving and investigating maths through everyday situations, it is a huge focus throughout school.

This year we are continuing our exciting journey using the Singapore Maths approach across Years 1 to 4. Singapore Maths is an innovative approach to teaching problem solving in mathematical situations, it matches the expectations of the new National Curriculum.

We are continually trying different approaches to make maths fun and relevant for our children. In recent years we have had weeks when the whole curriculum devoted to maths in a number of cross-curricular ways. For photographs of these activities please see our gallery pages. This year in June we will be participating a whole school based enterprise week.
At Sutton Green we believe in using different platforms to enhance maths learning. Each class on the website has included web links to games and activities for the appropriate age and what the class is currently learning.
In November, the whole of year 6 had and exciting opportunity to sample the Big Maths challenge at Whitby High School in conjunction with Liverpool University. It was a fantastic afternoon spent solving problems using large apparatus and all the pupils had lots of fun learning lots of things along the way. For photos of the day click on the following link :
In February, four Year 6 pupils represented Sutton Green at the inter-primary school quiz hosted by Whitby High School in conjunction with Liverpool University.
