To be numerate is to confidently and effectively use mathematics to meet the everyday demands
Why is numeracy important? Numeracy enables you to develop logical thinking and reasoning strategies in your daily life. We need numeracy to solve problems and make sense of time, numbers, patterns and shapes for activities like cooking, reading a map or bill, reading instructions and even playing sport. At Archbishop Blanch that's why we strive to ensure that lessons right across the curriculum present and develop opportunities for exploring maths.
Here you will find information on all the numeracy activities past and present that have been taking place at ABS. This page also provides fun challenges for all and support material for parents and students.
Archbishop Blanch are proud to be taking part in the Liverpool Counts Quality Mark’ numeracy pilot programme.
The scheme aims to achieve the following:
Good numeracy skills are essential for our everyday lives. We at ABS are dedicated to celebrating maths and making sure we introduce examples where ever possible across our whole school curriculum. We have introduced weekly numeracy activities to challenge students in form time and we are presently recruiting numeracy ambassadors to create material for this web page, so please watch this space!
