Maths 1


At Fairfield Park Lower School, we value Maths. We are MATHEMATICANS!

Maths enables all children to develop and master fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills across the maths curriculum.  Learning is presented using CPA methods (concrete, pictorial and abstract) in all or most lessons.

Children are encouraged to be independent learners and have opportunities to make choices of how they want to solve calculations or problems. These choices will gradually be streamlined so that all children are utilising formal written methods as per our cluster calculation policy that has been agreed with lower and middle schools in our area.  Please see policy section for our calculation policy.
