I started this blog with a focus on Maths GCSE but I’m equally fascinated by the way maths is taught in primary schools. Clearly how numeracy is taught and learned at primary schools has a major impact on Maths GCSE outcomes. In addition at primary school children are taught the basics of shapes, fractions, decimals, graphs, angles, trigonometry, algebra and probability.

I’ve added a few pages that cover subjects that should be learned at primary school but are often not totally mastered. Subjects such as times tables and fractions are important foundations for success at the GCSE level.
