Mathematics is taught as a daily lesson but we are increasingly expecting children to use mathematics in other learning. Mathematics at Woodside is coordinated by Mr Radford.
Mathematics is taught largely according to the National Curriculum as this is what children will be tested against. We follow the White Rose Maths SOL. All classes are mixed ability and children normally work on the year group objectives.
There is now a renewed emphasis on children having fast recall of their tables and we also focus on improving and consolidating children's arithmetic skills and knowledge for their age group. Across each unit, we want all children to develop their understanding of mathematics and their ability to put their knowledge and skills into practice to solve real problems.
We encourage parents to engage their children with real maths when shopping, cooking or decorating as well as making use of our online resources at MyMaths and Times Tables Rock Stars.
