Mata sa Rang is an initiative that has been implemented in Holy Family Junior School to improve teaching and learning in Mathematics.  Mata sa Rang is a classroom-based early intervention programme aimed at raising children’s competency in the various aspects of the number strand. It offers a unique approach to extending children’s number knowledge, understanding and strategies. 

This programme provides a framework for individual, group or class-based instruction which is suitable for children of all abilities. Children learn through the use of concrete materials and simple games. The programme emphasizes hands-on, experiential learning, allowing children to manipulate objects, solve real-world problems, and engage in collaborative activities. This active approach to learning not only helps children develop a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts but also fosters critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills. 

Our teachers have received training in the Mata Sa Rang programme and enjoy using it with their first class pupils.
