Lathallan uses the Scottish Heinemann Maths scheme which we believe is the most comprehensive and well structured framework for primary mathematics. We follow the 5-14 National Curriculum for Mathematics throughout the school.
This recommends four main Attainment Outcomes:
2. Information Handling
3. Number, Money and Measurement
4. Position and Movement.
By Junior 7 (P7) children work in two separate ability streams for maths. Pupils are encouraged to develop good mental maths skills and given ample opportunities to learn using practical exercises- measuring, weighing and estimating.
Additionally, pupils in the top two years may also cover some more advanced work in preparation for Scholarship examinations.
