Bringing Maths Alive with Inspire Maths

Inspire maths, brought to Elmhurst School by our very own Mrs Neagu, is the UK edition of Singapore’s leading Maths series and is the only mastery textbook programme proven to raise standards in the UK. International surveys show that children taught with the series score higher than their peers in standardised tests and also that it helps young children to become more confident with maths.

A major strength of Inspire Maths is it is robust structure, based on best-practice principles and methods of teaching and learning mathematics, including concreate-pictorial-abstract (CPA) and scaffolding approaches, and a systematic teaching pathway. This comprehensive pathway emphasises mastery-with continuous, active reinforcement of concepts to help children assimilate and accommodate their learning-followed by extension, challenging children to develop and practise the thinking skills that will enable them to become confident, critically aware and independent learners.
