Shap CE Primary SchoolA Safe Branch from which to Soar

Welcome toShap CE Primary SchoolA Safe Branch from which to Soar


At Shap School, we aim to offer pupils a rich and enjoyable experience in mathematics by providing the knowledge, skills, concepts and processes that are appropriate to each individual and that relate to the world around them. This provision should enable them to:

  • develop a positive and confident attitude towards mathematics and to achieve their full mathematical potential
  • develop logical thinking, enquiring minds and an ability to record in a systematic way
  • use maths to interpret, predict, explain and solve problems involving as much practical experience as possible
  • develop the correct mathematical vocabulary and other skills necessary to express their thinking and strategies in an appropriate manner
  • develop their ability to work independently and collaboratively, as appropriate
  • use technology within mathematics lessons and in the development of their mathematical concepts   
  • use and apply their mathematical knowledge by making appropriate choices in real-life situations

Mathematics Morning

We held a Maths Morning on 30th January 2019, where we welcomed family and friends into school, to come and see us being mathematicians. Adults had a chance to watch maths activities, learn different calculation methods, speak to teachers and children about their learning, play games and even have a go at some challenges themselves!

Focus on Maths - A 5-week course for parents

Following the success of our recent Mathematics Morning in school, we offered a 5-week course for parents, carers and grandparents of children in Y1 and Y2. The adults could explore games and activities to help their children develop their maths skills, whilst having fun. They also looked at different calculation methods to build their own confidence when supporting their child with homework. The children could also attend the final part of the session each week.
