At present you do not need to buy any books for our Leyton branch lessons but we do ask parents to purchase workbooks from Amazon for online sessions. Your child will receive an exercise book (Leyton) which will be used as a maths journal, something that is standard in Singapore Maths.
Exercise Books: We supply pupils with squared exercise books for the year. If they complete the exercise book then they receive another one but if they lose their exercise book then they will need to pay £1 for a replacement.
Textbooks and Workbooks: Textbooks are sometimes used in class and will not be given to pupils to take home. Workbooks will also be given to pupils in Year 2-Year 7. These will be purchased by the Academy but any workbooks that are lost will need to be replaced by parents. The cost of the books will vary depending on the workbooks we use for different year groups.
Other resources: Pupils are asked to bring to each lesson, a pencil, pen, ruler and any other appropriate maths tool needed for their Key Stage (for example a scientific calculator for KS3 and GCSE students).
Our approach is very visual, using the CPA approach. This means that we normally have all the other maths resources at hand for our lessons, especially for the Leyton branch and 1-to-1 sessions. With our online lessons, we tend to use online digital manipulatives to visualise concepts.
