VisionTo inculcate an appreciation for Math in our pupils who are effective problem solvers.
To develop pupils into independent lifelong learners who are equipped with problem-solving skills for real-life application.
We adopt a 4A approach in the teaching and learning of Math – Awareness, Acquisition, Appreciation and Accomplishment. Hence our programmes and activities are also specially tailored to:
- Increase pupils’ awareness of Math in everyday life.
- Help pupils acquire Math skills and concepts.
- Enable pupils to appreciate and foster interest in Math.
- Create opportunities for pupils to have a sense of accomplishment in Math.
Our Programmes and Activities
Sharing Sessions for Parents
Sharing sessions are organised for parents at the beginning of the year to share strategies and resources to help or guide their child in the learning of Mathematics. We value the partnership with parents and seek to engage them in the pupils’ educational journey.
Fun with Math is a biannual event that runs for a week during the recesses. It aims to encourage pupils to engage in purposeful play. The activities curated for the respective levels provided pupils with opportunities to engage in ‘playful learning’ beyond their classrooms while picking up skills such as logical reasoning and spatial visualisation. It was heartening to observe the enthusiastic participation of the teachers and pupils as well as the rich discussions generated. Pupils were recognised for their participation and correct responses. The winning classes for each level received their prizes during assembly. Till we meet again in Term 3!

Cooking with Math
Math concepts are integrated in the school’s Home Skills Programme. All phases of cooking require some concepts of Math - meal planning, grocery shopping, food budgeting, measuring ingredients and conversions. Through the hands-on sessions, pupils will be able to make the connection between the Math concepts they have learnt and real-life applications.

Learning Support for Math
Learning Support for Mathematics (LSM) is an early intervention effort aimed at providing additional support to pupils who do not have foundational numeracy skills and knowledge to access the Primary 1 Math curriculum. Pupils will be supported by a LSM Teacher at the beginning of Primary 1. Support continues in Primary 2 for pupils who need it.
Math Banded Remediation Programme
From Primary 3 onwards, pupils are given additional support during the Math Banded Remediation Programme. The lessons are specially crafted to address pupils’ learning needs and close up their learning gaps. The class size is also smaller to allow greater interaction between the teachers and the pupils.
Math Buddy Programme
The Math Buddy Programme is a peer tutoring system that benefits both the tutor and tutee socially and academically by motivating them to learn. The tutees are able to learn from their peers and communicate mathematically in a one-to-one setting. There is an old saying, “To teach is to learn twice.” Thus, this programme also gives the tutors the opportunity to revise the concepts learnt previously.
