We believe that giving children the skills to be numerate is vitally important. Children are taught maths skills that develop their awareness and understanding of number, measurement, shape and data handling. Children are not only taught mathematical skills, but also how to apply them in problem solving situations.
At Woodford School we place a huge emphasis on mathematical arithmetic and reasoning. Children are encouraged to explain their thinking at all points in their maths lessons and to relate their learning to any one or more of four mathematical powers.
As a school we follow the White Rose Scheme which is a scheme of learning that has a clear, time-linked plan for learning. All of their schemes are written for year groups and cover the whole school year of learning.
For each year group, the scheme of learning includes an overview of the Maths that your child will be learning at any point in the year.
Each year is split into three terms (autumn, spring and summer), and each term comprises individual blocks of learning about a particular topic.
