Working Together Towards Excellence



Children are encouraged to develop a love and appreciation for maths and a sound understanding of mathematical principles through first-hand investigation and problemsolving in real life contexts.

We also work hard to ensure that the basic table facts and methods of computation are clearly taught and emphasised. The place of mental mathematics is highly valued as it promotes quick and independent thinking as well as being an invaluable life skill.

Children are provided with opportunities to apply their mathematical knowledge to practical activities and therefore understand the relevance of using mathematics in every life.
