Purpose of study
Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
At Fairfield, we use a system called Maths Passports to raise standards in key Maths facts and skills. The age specific content has been split into year groups, which are named after continents or explorers. When the child has successfully progressed through the list of objectives for each age group, they are awarded with a badge in our celebration assembly.
If you would like to help your child with this area of their learning, then just click and open the passport document below which is for their age group. Examples have been given for each objective to make it clearer what the child has to learn.
