# Maths Learning Strands

Children in each year group work toward a set of learning objectives. We describe the learning objectives related to a particular ability as 'strands'. For example, being able to tell the time, understanding seconds, minutes and hours and being able to estimate the time all fall within the strand of measuring time.
