General Information

Maths is important in everyday life. With this in mind, we endeavor to ensure that children develop a healthy and enthusiastic attitude towards maths that will stay with them throughout life.


At Bannerman Road Community Academy we believe that, with the right kind of teaching and support, every child can master the level of maths for their year group. Where appropriate, we use some of the teaching methods developed in Singapore. We use the Concrete – Pictorial – Abstract approach to ensure the children have a true understanding of a concept. Each lesson is structured in a way where the learning gets progressively more complex throughout the lesson. The children know they need to explain why their answer is correct and how they worked it out. After we are certain that they have truly mastered a concept, the children then apply their knowledge to problem solving activities.
