Maths at Park Wood Schools Federation
Here at Park Wood, Year 1 to Year 6 use and supplement the Maths No Problem approach to teaching Maths. Our Foundation Stage children follow a similar approach to that outlined below, but they are ultimately working towards meeting the Early Learning Goals set out by the Government.
As recommended by the leading educators in Singapore, we take children on a journey of three stages for each area on Maths. First, the children explore new learning using concrete learning experiences through the use of manipulatives. This is followed by the same concept being tackled using pictorial representations. Once the children are secure in the fundamentals of each concept, they are then expected use a more abstract approach to their learning.
The following links will give you a more in-depth insight into the Singapore approach.
Below you will find an overview of the curriculum for each year group.
