Each pupil in Reception and Years 1 and 2 is taught numeracy skills at a pace that suits each individual.
Practical number work is taught as a class activity, with various challenges offered to drive pupils onwards as they are ready. Visualization, mental strategies and pattern recognition are all encompassed through the use of the Singapore Maths philosophy. In KS2, pupils are taught in groups with some lessons in Years 5 and 6 being taught in sets in preparation for 11+. At all levels emphasis is placed on clear understanding, investigation and problem-solving.
