Glasgow City Council Welcome to Dunard Primary School & Nursery Class

Numeracy and Mathematics

Our aim is to provide a progressive programme of study in all aspects of mathematics for all pupils regardless of age, gender, aptitude or physical circumstances.
Using a variety of approaches we hope to develop in each pupil an enquiring mind, along with the necessary attitude, skills and knowledge.
To achieve this view of mathematics all pupils will experience a range of activities, which are practical, investigative, enjoyable and challenging. Transfer and connections across the curriculum will be made.
Learning and teaching in maths will take place across the four aspects of:
  • Problem Solving
  • Information Handling
  • Number, Money & Measurement (including Financial Awareness)
  • Shape, Position & Movement 



Specific Aims to be Developed

  • a positive, confident attitude to maths
  • an awareness of the usefulness and relevance of maths in life
  • an understanding of maths through problem solving and investigation
  • the use of problem solving as a method of enquiry across the curriculum
  • the ability to discuss, explain and report maths activities
  • competence in the use of mental and problem solving strategies
