Maths

We follow strategies based on Singapore Maths at JH Godwin. This involves allowing children to experience  concepts in concretly (hands on) in depth before progressing on to pictorial representations, followed by abstract representations. The children deepen their learning and demonstrate mastery of a concept through finally and problem solving and reasoning activities.
