Many schools and teachers that I come into contact with repeatedly say how their children don’t seem to understand nor enjoy maths and hence they are very excited about Singapore Maths, which aims to change this.
I was really happy to train a school in South West London today in which both the Year 1 and 2 teachers spoke so highly of Singapore Maths. This is the first year they are using the schemes in their school and so far they are absolutely loving teaching maths using this exceptional pedagogy. The feedback from parents in the first parents meetings were also very encouraging. Parents noticed a sharp increase in their children discussing Maths with eagerness at home and teachers can only put that down to the change of books and pedagogy implemented in the school since September 2014. A big part of their success has to be due to their Headteacher and Maths Coordinator who have lead their Singapore Maths adventure with so much enthusiasm.
