Numeracy skills are essential for everyday life and understanding of our world. It is essential to science, technology and engineering, and the advances in these fields on which our economic future depends. Therefore, it is important that students learn to be creative in solving problems, as well as being confident and fluent in developing and using the numeracy skills so valued by the world of industry and higher education. This should be a right for all, not a privilege for some.
Pupils will use numeracy skills across all subjects at Byrchall. These are skills learned in maths that are used and applied in other subject areas. We have devised some 'how to' sheets, which are available below, to enable pupils to use and apply these skills appropriately.
