Screen N.S teaches Mathematics to develop life long skills. We will always need the skills we learn in Maths in all areas of our lives. We teach Mathematics using the Operation Maths scheme of work based on the National Curriculum objectives. The Mathematics curriculum is for children from junior infants to sixth class. The curriculum identifies
· mathematical skills to be developed
· content for children’s learning:
· Shape and space
Discussion, hands-on experience with materials, and active learning are encouraged as well as the development of mathematical language to share ideas and thinking.
A new primary mathematics curriculum is currently in development and will be published as a single specification from junior infants to 6th class in late 2021.
