Greenfield Primary School

Welcome to Greenfield Primary School.


The most meaningful way for young children to embed their learning in maths is in real contexts. At home, and out and about the environment, there are endless opportunities for counting, spotting shapes and patterns, using ordinal language (first, second, third), comparing measures and exploring addition and subtraction in practical ways. Some ideas include:

  • estimating and counting number of steps to/from places
  • counting out food items needed or cutlery to lay the table,
  • Identifying 2D/3D shapes whilst out on a walk
  • weighing for baking
  • skittles games/target games


We have also included some interactive games and videos linked to our learning in maths at school. Have fun!
