We use a mastery approach to learning mathematics.
We believe that every child can master an understanding and a love of maths with the right kind of teaching and support. We specifically use the Maths – No Problem! primary school series, using the mastery teaching approach from Singapore.
Aligned to the 2014 English National Curriculum for mathematics, the series is used as part of the NCETM’s Maths Hub programme.
Features of Singapore Maths:
Emphasis on problem solving and comprehension, allowing pupils to relate what they learn and to connect knowledge
Careful scaffolding of core competencies of : visualisation, as a platform for comprehension mental strategies, to develop decision making abilities pattern recognition, to support the ability to make connections and generaliseEmphasis on the foundations for learning and not on the content itself so pupils learn to think mathematically as opposed to merely reciting formulas or procedures.
