Thrapston Primary School


Maths Curriculum

Maths is an essential and exciting part of our curriculum. Through our daily maths teaching, we support children to make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. We intend for our pupils to be able to apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects.
