At Turves Green Primary we aim to prepare children for the next stage of their education and lay the foundations for successful lives after school.  We recognise the importance of preparing children for the jobs of tomorrow, which will require greater mathematical skills than in the past, including thinking mathematically in order to use technology that as yet doesn’t even exist.

Concrete Pictorial and Abstract (CPA) approach.

Children use a concrete (things they can touch), pictorial (drawing and representation) and abstract (the numbers) in most lessons, to ensure they really understand the maths.
