Arithmetic

Arithmetic sessions are designed to give pupils opportunities to refine their knowledge of their year group specific arithmetic skills. Teachers deliver arithmetic sessions on a weekly basis during a 30 minute dedicated slot on the timetable and during one of the start of the day (SODA) activities from 08:50 to 09:00. The aim of these sessions is to encourage pupils to learn their arithmetic skills and facts to a high standard so they can confidently and quickly recall them to solve a wide range of problems across the entire mathematics curriculum.
