Enhanced Learning Support Programme for Mathematics (LSM)

The Enhanced Learning Support Programme for Mathematics (LSM) aims to provide early support for Primary 1 and 2 students who have weak basic numeracy skills. This programme focuses on the basic mathematical skills and concepts to build good foundation in the students.

Students are fully withdrawn from their mainstream classes with lessons carried out in small group during their Maths periods by a trained LSM Coordinator.

Students learn through many varied activities and  hands-on  experiences in a conducive environment.


Mathematics Big Book Reading Programme 

(Lower Primary)

The aim of Mathematics Big Book reading is to enable the students to learn Maths vocabulary and to reinforce the mathematical concepts that they have learnt in class.

Interesting Maths activities are designed to accompany the Maths Big Book Reading Programme in the P1 and P2 classrooms.



Sustained Support for Mathematics (SSM)  

Sustained Support for Mathematics (SSM) was introduced to build essential Maths concepts and stimulate students’ interest in the learning of Maths using activity-based approach.

The lessons are hands-on and manipulatives will be provided to the students for teaching in class.

Mathematics Recess Games  

Mathematics Recess Games are conducted to reinforce mathematical skills that have been taught in the classroom. These skills include critical thinking, spatial visualization and analysis of relationships. This fosters in students a love for mathematics through Play.

Heuristics and Thinking Skills in Mathematics (HATS in Maths)

In addition, the Mathematics Department has also included HATS in Maths into the classroom curriculum.

‘HATS’ is the acronym for Heuristics and Thinking Skills. Heuristics refer to a series of strategies such as Use a Diagram, Make a Systematic List and Work Backwards. Examples of thinking skills include analyzing parts and whole, sequencing and identifying patterns.

Thinking skills and heuristics are important processes in handling mathematical problem solving. Hence, we would like to equip our students from Primary 1 to 6 with these skills.

Primary 4 to Primary 6 Mathematics Olympiad Programmes

The Olympiad programmes aim to stretch students who are more mathematically inclined and are progressive in content coverage from Primary 4 to Primary 6.

After the training, selected Primary 4 to Primary 6 students will take part in the Maths Olympiad Competitions at the national level.
