Junior School Classes

Maths

Lathallan uses the Scottish Heinemann Maths scheme which we believe is the most comprehensive and well structured framework for primary mathematics.

This recommends four main Attainment Outcomes:

1. Problem-Solving
2. Information Handling
3. Number, Money and Measurement
4. Position and Movement.

By Junior 7 (P7) children work in two separate ability streams for maths. Pupils are encouraged to develop good mental maths skills and given many opportunities to learn using practical exercises- measuring, weighing and estimating.

Additionally, pupils in the top two years may also cover some more advanced work in preparation for Scholarship examinations.
