Mathematics is a special subject. In learning new topics, the children really have to think as never before. In developing their problem solving they discover that the search for pattern, hidden connections and the linking of all they have learned before is very exciting: the knowledge that the answer is there, it can be found.

At Leweston we place great emphasis on the four rules and tables, making sure these are secure so as to be easily used as tools in problem solving and other topics. By the time the children reach the top of the school they have encountered perimeter, area, common and decimal fractions, percentages, pie charts, circles, angles and much more.
