Maths @ Mount Pleasant

We recognise the importance of maths as a life skill at Mount Pleasant, hence why we put so much effort into ensuring that our children get excellent maths lessons at all times. The purpose of this page is to support the parent with the work that goes on in the classroom. If this page doesn't help please come and speak to a member of staff.

Maths Booklets for each term as well yearly objectives are avaliable for download from the links in the right hand menu. Just like the maths we do in school, maths at home should be a shared activity between parent  and children with the activites being interactive and fun.
