Mathematics at JAPS is varied and comprehensive. Practical activities, games and investigations are used across all age groups as children learn the practical application of the skills they have learnt for the real world. Mathematics is seen as an accessible and enjoyable subject.
Mathematics is taught by Class Teachers throughout the Pre-Prep using objectives from the primary framework and the Early years Foundation Stage Curriculum. In Year 3 and 4, teaching of Mathematics is based around a range of resources resulting in stimulating and challenging lessons. Pupils move on to specialist teaching in Years 5 and 6; teaching materials used here are specifically created for the purpose.
Senior School Entrance Exams are certainly a focus for the older JAPS pupils, but they usually meet this challenge very confidently. More able pupils are very successful in gaining scholarships but JAPS is also proud of the fact that most pupils go on to their Senior Schools feeling positive about Maths, and with confidence in their own abilities.
