Our Purpose
We want our students to be able to:
  • Acquire and apply math concepts and skills well
  • Be fluent with computations and number facts
  • Engage actively in mathematics problem solving
  • Engage actively in logical reasoning and creative thinking
  • Develop the interest and confidence in learning math

Our Focus for Primary One to Six
 
P1 and P2 P3 and P4 P5 and P6
  • Build strong foundation in basic concepts and skills
  • Start to solve word problems
  • Foster opportunities for early successes
  • Start the habit of assessing learning progress
  • Strengthen concepts and skills
  • Develop problem solving strategies
  • Develop logical reasoning and creative thinking
  • Develop the habit of self-regulating of learning progress
  • Consolidate and extend concepts and skills
  • Master problem solving
  • Develop fluency in logical reasoning and creative thinking
  • Be adept at self-regulating of learning progress
 
 
Key Strategies in our daily Teaching and Learning
Providing meaningful learning experiences

Students' thinking, reasoning skills and understanding of mathematical concepts are developed and reinforced when they make sense of what they learn. Our lessons are thus carefully planned to ensure our students actively engage in sense making by interacting, inquiring, doing and teaching others. To internalise the skills or concepts, there will be an effective mix of focused practices and space practices.

Providing timely feedback to students and parents

We constantly gather information about our students' thinking, learning and disposition through appropriate assessment methods, both formal and informal. The information gathered enables us to reflect on and inform our instruction. Using the information, we can also provide feedback that enables our students to monitor their progress and know their strengths and weaknesses so that they can improve their learning. The feedback also motivates and engages the students so that they have greater ownership of their learning to strive for improvement.

Use appropriate assessment methods to capture the various facets of learning

We adopt a range of assessment methods and tools to assess our students' understanding. For example, Math journal writing assesses fluency in mathematical vocabulary, language and thinking processes. Performance Task is used to assess the process of problem-solving. The students' results from their formative and summative assessment will be used both as ongoing review of our instructional goals and programmes, as well as to provide feedback to students, teachers and parents.
