At Hamstel Junior School we follow the Maths No Problem scheme. Maths No Problem is a maths scheme which is based on the mastery teaching approach from Singapore; it is an approach to teaching maths which develops pupils' mathematical ability and confidence without having to resort to memorising procedures to pass tests - making mathematics more engaging and interesting.
This approach demands that the children talk about their maths and apply their maths knowledge and understanding in a variety of situations. Through this approach, we expect the children to have a much deeper understanding of the skills and knowledge they are taught.
Did you know?
The government expects all children to know their tables (up to 12 times) by the end of year 4
Learning times tables and remembering them quickly is a very important skill and one which is used in many different aspects of maths.
Your child will be set times tables facts to learn. Each week they will have a short test to help them recall these quickly.
Please encourage your child to practise his/her times tables daily.
