Accrington Woodnook Primary School


The aim of our Mathematics curriculum is to ensure that our children have access to a high-quality Maths curriculum that develops understanding, fluency, reasoning and competence in solving problems. The children at Woodnook have a vocabulary rich Mathematical environment, which enables discussion and making links to develop a deep understanding of number. As instructed by the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework (2021) and the National Curriculum (2021) for Maths, we aim for all children to meet the standards as out-lined for each stage in the Mathematics Curriuculum Overview.

Maths at Woodnook begins by building a deep understanding of number in EYFS as the children learn about each number in turn, using a range of resources and songs, while making links to other areas of the wider Maths curriculum (e.g. shape, time, measure, position). From Year 1, we follow the Lancashire sequence of learning, and the Yearly Overview shows what is taught each term and in what order.
