Mathematics is a creative and highly interconnected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment.
A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
Following extensive training, and national research we carried out over 12 months, we use a nationally commissioned scheme to help us teach maths - Maths No Problem.
The Maths-No Problem (MNP) Primary Series is recommended by the DfE for schools on the Teaching for Mastery Programme and is fully aligned with the 2014 English national curriculum. MNP textbooks and workbooks are designed using decades of research to ensure a deep, secure understanding of maths in learners of every attainment level.
At Woodlea we, promote a variety of different ways to show what we have learned, including; traditional formal written methods, mental jottings, pictures, concrete equipment or the use of cutting edge technology.
