Mastering Number at KS1
Supporting pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 to develop good number sense
A national programme to secure firm foundations in the development of good number sense
What is involved?
This programme focuses on the key knowledge and understanding needed in Reception classes and progression through KS1. Participating schools will receive central training (online and face-to-face) and a wealth of pupil-facing resources.
There is an expectation that schools will provide a daily teaching session for all children of 10 to 15 minutes, in addition to their normal maths lesson. Lead Teachers in schools will also contribute to an online community to share practice and engage in critical reflection.
Who can take part?
Lead participants from Work Group schools will be three teachers, one each from – one each from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 – known as Lead Teachers. Some support will also be given to subject leaders and headteachers. Where appropriate, Lead Teachers are expected to support the other teachers in their year group.
- Your pupils will be able to clearly communicate their mathematical ideas.
- You will develop a secure understanding of how to build firm mathematical foundations.
- You will work to develop teaching strategies focused on developing fluency in calculation and number sense for all children.
- You will develop understanding and use of appropriate manipulatives to support your teaching of mathematical structures.
What is the cost?
The programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme, so is free to participating schools. This includes a free class set of Rekenreks.
