Together We Climb to Succeed




At Pepper Hill School we teach mathematics using the Maths Makes Sense scheme created by Richard Dunne which is in line with the New National Curriculum.


The Maths Makes Sense scheme is a powerful learning system which combines concrete objects, actions and vocabulary in a cycle of learning and assessment which enables children to become lifelong mathematicians. It avoids and prevents misconceptions and ensures children enjoy every maths lesson!


The careful planning of maths at Pepper Hill School enables teaching to develop the children’s skills in the following areas:


  • Addition
  • Subtraction
  • Multiplication
  • Division
  • Shape, space and measures
  • Problem solving
  • Data handling
  • Using and applying


We carefully plan to provide the children with a wealth of purposeful and interesting activities which give the children the opportunity to widen their knowledge of mathematics as well as apply the skills they already have in different situations.
