Maths at North Ridge Community School
Mathematics is taught throughout the whole of the school. It is a core subject and key skill.
In Sun, Moon, Pluto, Mars and Jupiter classes pupils have fun activities and adult led sessions to help them develop their maths skills. They learn through play.
In Neptune, Saturn, Mercury and Venus maths is taught as a discrete subject and cross-curricular. Maths is embedded in practical activities and daily classroom routines.
In Sixth Form maths is taught as a life skill with the focus on number, money and time. Students use their maths skills and knowledge at Harmony House, during food technology lessons, travel training and shopping. (Independent Living)
