Maths at Outwood
At Outwood, we intend our children to have a love and excitement for maths in their everyday lives - knowing its purpose - not just whilst in school. We aim to build children's confidence and develop their skills for solving mathematical problems that use their ability to think logically and strategically. We use daily 'I wonder . . .' and 'if I know this, what else do i know?' starters to lessons, SODA's (Start of the Day Activities) for children to explore concepts and ideas as far as they can take them without fear of being 'right' or 'wrong' - all of the time encoraging children to make links to prior learning.
