Liverpool Counts

 

 L Counts

 

This year, our school has been successfully accepted onto an exciting new project called ‘Liverpool Counts Quality Mark’, which aims to promote a positive attitude towards maths and show how important maths is in school and at home. Over the coming year we will be looking at different ways to show the children that numeracy skills are used consistently in everyday life.

We will regularly update our website about how we use maths, showing you the different learning activities from across the school.
