Aims and Vision in Maths
We aim that children at Woodlands will have the ability to adapt their mathematical techniques and strategies to a variety of situations, problems and challenges with growing fluency, mathematical knowledge and enjoyment. They will be able to articulate their ideas and thoughts using a range of mathematical language, in a reasoned and logical manner.
We aim to achieve this by providing a rich and diverse mathematical curriculum that makes links across mathematical concepts and all other curriculum subjects where possible. Children will have the opportunity to learn maths in a range of contexts and environments. We use the Herts for Learning Maths ESSENTIALmaths planning which promotes a strong understanding and progressive development of maths by teaching through the use of CPA (concrete, pictorial and abstract development).
Our vision is to ensure all children will leave Woodlands with an enthusiastic, excited and confident approach to maths - enabled with the mathematical skills to achieve throughout their life time.
In Woodlands we use a limitless learning approach to our teaching to ensure that children are always challenged and working at a level suitable to them. Click here for more information about this approach.
