Inspire Maths at Handale Primary School

Inspire Maths is a detailed textbook scheme of work based upon the Singapore approach to teaching mathematics which ensures a deep understanding of mathematical concepts and understanding which underpins mastery.  Inspire Maths uses a spiral progression to develop fluency, reasoning, problem solving and conceptual understanding of mathematics through a concrete – pictorial – abstract approach.

The textbooks are designed to support teaching through providing children with repetition and consolidation through variation and ensuring a seamless progression between concrete, pictorial and abstract models for maths.  

Teachers apply a ‘to me, to you’ style of teaching in the lessons, ensuring that there is a balance between teacher modelling, group and independent work.  Children are encouraged to challenge themselves and explain their mathematical thinking through teacher questioning and problem solving activities.

Children follow the Inspire Maths scheme of work which begins with a transition programme followed by in depth coverage of all areas of maths.

Teachers enhance the Inspire Maths programme with their own knowledge and expertise to further challenge the more able and to support children with SEND. Same day intervention and feedback underpins the Singapore approach to ensure children progress and gaps in knowledge and understanding do not emerge or widen.
