Mathematics

Mathematics at Woodfield is taught using a Mastery approach. Children develop a deep and secure understanding of mathematical concepts which supports them when moving on to more advanced concepts. The teaching of maths is based on the Five Big Ideas (Fluency, Variation, Coherence, Mathematical Thinking and Representation and Structure) which ensures that children are taught not only quick recall, facts and processes, but also how to apply learning in different contexts, make links and connections, problem solve and apply mathematical thinking and reasoning.  Learning takes place through a variety of practical work, investigative problem solving, class and paired discussion and embedded with practice and more formal learning opportunities.
