Within Avondale School, maths is taught primarily using the Inspire Maths scheme.
Inspire Maths is a mastery based , whole-school primary maths programme. It uses a spiral progression to develop fluency, reasoning, and problem solving. It is based on the leading Singapore Maths series My Pals are Here, used in 100% of Singapore's state primary schools. Singapore is currently one of the highest ranked countries in the world in terms of attainment in Maths.
In Maths lessons, your child will:
be using engaging pupil textbooks to introduce new concepts in a highly scaffolded way.
develop critical thinking skills, make mathematical connections and become confident mathematicians
build on a concrete - pictorial - abstract approach, ensuring secure foundations and deep understanding of mathematical concepts
develop Mathematical language through paired activities in which they will explain the mathematical concepts that they are using.
Our curriculum is designed to develop children's broader understanding of maths and prepare them fully for the end of Key Stage assessments. Areas of the maths curriculum the are not covered by the Inspire Maths scheme are stringently planned for and taught alongside the scheme.
