STOPS Problem Solving

Problem solving and investigation are vital elements of our Maths lessons. Each week we dedicate a lesson to ‘S.T.O.P.S' Problem Solving (www.stopsproblemsolving.co.uk), focusing on solving maths problems and investigating possibilities. Your child will be taught specific problem-solving strategies, and will be encouraged to work collaboratively, talking through strategies to find solutions.
