Mathematical concepts are taught by adopting the CPA approach – Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract.
Students are introduced to the concepts, starting with the pictorial approach and moving to the representational and then to the abstract.

Skills and strategies are also taught in a meaningful context. A values-related theme, eg perseverance, is set for each week.
Students are exposed to thematic comprehension and/or cloze passages pitched at the student’s language ability.
Again, this enables language to be learned in a meaningful and authentic context.
Primary 1 & 2
Hands-on activities bring mathematical concepts and skills alive in the classroom. Children acquire useful life skills such as telling time and counting money as they learn Math through discussions, role-plays and games.
In addition, values like saving money and sharing are discussed and reinforced when teaching Mathematical concepts.
Primary 3 & 4
The Middle Primary Mathematics Programme focuses on providing the right component-specific skills and techniques that help children demonstrate an application of the content taught.
The systematic approach enables children to excel academically as they solve and answer Mathematical questions with confidence.
