A place for everyone. Together, we are inspired to grow, learn and achieve.

We are really excited about seeing children in Years 1-6 on Thursday 3rd September. Key Stage One enter through the side pedestrian gate and Key Stage Two through the vehicle gates and onto the field.

Welcome to Woodlands Park Primary & Nursery School

Welcome to our school website. We hope you find it interesting and informative.


Place value

The children will recognise the place value of each digit in a four-digit number and continue to order and compare numbers beyond 1000 using mathematical vocabulary and symbols. They will identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations and will begin to round numbers to the nearest 1000. Children will focus on counting from 0 in multiples of 6, 7, 9, 25 and 1000, count backwards through zero to include negative numbers and find 1000 more or less than a given number. They will begin to read Roman numerals up to 1000. Finally, children will have the opportunity to use all their number and place value skills to solve a range of problems.


Addition and Subtraction

The children will practise mental methods with increasingly large numbers to aid fluency. They will add and subtract numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction where appropriate. Children will also estimate and use inverse operations to check answers to a calculation. Finally, the children will solve addition and subtraction two-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why.
