I took eight Year 6s to the district netball festival today and for each of them, it was their first experience of representing our school in an inter-school sporting event. 🏐 Superb teamwork and values shown throughout, what a bunch!

Loving the progress my year 6s are making in dance, particularly the boys who in week 1 we’re very unimpressed with our new PE unit. Today, one particular group performed their ‘dance mashup’ and received a standing ovation from the rest of the class. Brilliant stuff!

At Southgate, we follow the ‘Inspire Maths’ approach to teaching mathematics. This was introduced in February 2017 across years one to five, and is now also being used within year 6 from September 2017. 

 What is Inspire Maths?

  • ‘Inspire Maths’ is built on the proven approach to teaching mathematics in Singapore, recognised globally as one of the most impactful ways to teach and learn maths.

  • ‘Inspire Maths’ has been developed with leading UK educational experts and correlated to the new National Curriculum in England. It was selected by the Department for Education and NCETM for the national textbook research project with Maths Hubs

  • The programme follows a concrete – pictorial – abstract approach which ensures deep understanding of mathematical concepts during individual lessons and over time.

  • Carefully-designed spiral progression in the programme builds up knowledge over time, enabling all children to become confident mathematicians.

  • Inspire maths guided sessions promote discussion and exploration, with a strong emphasis on mathematical language, speaking in full sentences, and reasoning (by children consistently being required to explain how they know).

  • Inspire maths guided sessions include specific questions, which draw out children’s understanding and identify and misconceptions immediately.
