From September 2017, we have introduced Inspire Maths in Year 1, 3, 4 and 5. The approaches and applications from this scheme will be transferred across all the year groups in the school to ensure all pupils benefit from this new approach.
Inspire Maths builds firm foundations and a deep understanding of mathematical concepts through a concrete-pictorial-abstract approach. These Pupil Textbooks provide a scaffolded introduction to each new learning objective, guided practice activities, opportunities for further practice, and suggestions for how parents can support learning at home.
Inspire Maths is a transformational, whole-school primary maths programme based on the leading Singapore Maths series My Pals are Here, used in 100% of Singapore’s state primary schools.
- Accessible pupil textbooks introduce concepts in a highly scaffolded way, enabling all children to develop critical thinking skills, make mathematical connections and become confident mathematicians
- Built on a concrete – pictorial – abstract approach, ensuring secure foundations and deep understanding of mathematical concepts
- Uses a spiral progression to develop fluency, reasoning, and problem solving and conceptual understanding for mastery
Below are some helpful documents for you to use with your children at home which are based on the topics covered in the Inspire Teaching programme.
