Inspire Maths:

Inspire MathsAt Sixpenny Handley First School we have just introduced Inspire Maths to all of our children from Year 1 - 4.

This is scheme that moves through 3 stages of learning – Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract and enables the children to learn mathematical concepts thoroughly so they develop a better understanding on maths as a whole. We teach Inspire Maths in separate year groups.

In reception we use Numicon to help children process mathematical skills and also include opportunities for Maths investigation through our play activities.
