St Malachy's Primary School


At St Malachy’s we encourage pupils to develop a positive attitude towards Numeracy, helping them to realise that Mathematics has relevance across the curriculum and value in real-life situations.

We provide pupils with a variety of practical learning experiences following the requirements of The Revised Northern Ireland Curriculum. We encourage the development of Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities, through Mathematical activities; playing, exploring and investigating, doing and observing, talking and listening, and asking and answering questions. We know this develops Mathematical skills and Mental Strategies.

We use Interactive Whiteboards in our classrooms to enhance the teaching and learning of Mathematics for all our pupils.
