Mathematics & Numeracy

Numeracy involves applying and connecting the five mathematical skills in a range of real-life contexts, within the Mathematics and Numeracy Area of Learning and Experience, and the wider curriculum. There are five main areas that have been identified in the new curriculum:

  • Conceptual understanding; having the knowledge to understand and explain a mathematical concept.

  • Communication with symbols.

  • Strategic competence (i.e. formulating problems mathematically in order to solve them).

  • Logical reasoning.

  • Fluency

​Our approach to Mathematics and Numeracy at Dolau Primary School aims to develop all these areas in a purposeful and meaningful way for all our pupils.
