Our mathematics curriculum equips pupils with tools that include logical reasoning, problem-

solving skills, and the ability to think in abstract ways.

During the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, maths forms part of many interactive 

learning experiences.  Pupils develop their knowledge and understanding of mathematics 

through play, exploration and discussion.  Children work with shapes and begin to learn their 

properties, use language to give positional clues and compare quantities, identify and 

recreate patterns.  They learn to count, read, write and order numbers using songs and 


Within Key Stages 1 & 2 at Woodlands we have implemented the teaching of Mathematics in 

single age classes. This has ensured that all pupils are taught at age appropriate 

expectations and has had a significant impact in improving pupil outcomes. We have 

recently implemented the Liverpool Mathematics Long Term Scheme of Work which has 

helped to raise expectations and has been a means of identifying and challenging our more 

able pupils. Any pupils identified as working below age appropriate expectations ate targeted 

and supported by carefully selected intervention programmes.
