We follow a CPA approach to maths (Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract). Children of all ages and stages are given the opportunity to learn how to solve calculations using concrete manipulatives (e.g. counters) before they are encouraged to draw pictures to help them work out the answers pictorially. Finally they learn how to work abstractly. Please click the different splats below to see some of our children modelling a few of the CPA stages we go through to master each calculation. For more details and to see all of the different stages then please see our school Calculation Policy.
