Here at Northcote we take maths very seriously, however we always have lots of fun when we are learning.  Mrs Foden is the maths co-ordinator.  From nursery through to year 6 we learn through interesting lessons, problem solving, practical activities and our teachers always ensure the right amount of challenge.  

From year 1 - year 6 children learn their multiplication tables and trickier division facts through completeing 'assertive mentoring tables system'  We are all aiming to achieve up to 12X12 by the end of year 5.
