At Forest Oak our core aim is to foster a love of learning of Mathematics through exploration opportunities that develop a real-life hands-on approach. We believe that Mathematics is a key skill that helps us develop a sense of the world around us. We want our learners to enjoy their learning through doing, using the CPA teaching approach (concrete – pictorial – abstract).

At Forest Oak, we want Mathematics to be enjoyed, by creating a fun and engaging curriculum. We want our learners to develop knowledge and understanding of mathematical skills and concepts and how they can be transferred to their lives. Children will be given opportunities for practical activities, role play and mathematical board and ICT games.

We will provide a creative learning journey that is rich in developing all learners’ mental and oral strategies with an emphasis on number bonds and multiplication tables. We will encourage the use of mathematical vocabulary, whilst encouraging problem-solving and reasoning techniques for those who are able to access it.
