From very early on in their school lives, we expect children to use and understand numbers, which are abstract concepts. Consequently, many children really struggle with maths because of this!
At Cadland we ensure that the foundations for mathematical learning are securely in place before the children begin to grapple with more complex, abstract concepts. Teachers ensure that children achieve a secure sense of what numbers actually represent through extensive use of physical objects and pictures before ultimately using representations such as numerals.
The children enjoy and benefit from this style of learning!
