Mastering Number at KS2
Mastering Number at KS2 Work Group focusing on multiplicative thinking.
In 2024/25, Maths Hubs will again be offering schools the opportunity to engage in Mastering Number at KS2 Work Groups.
Knowledge of multiplication and division, and its applications, forms the single most important aspect of the KS2 curriculum and is the gateway to success at secondary school. It is also a key area that pupils often struggle with. Automaticity with multiplication tables relieves cognitive load and develops pupils’ confidence to achieve success.
The project offers schools that are involved in Mastering Number at Reception and KS1, and are also actively engaged in a Sustaining Work Group, the opportunity for teachers to develop the knowledge and skills to secure good multiplicative number sense and automaticity in times tables. The programme will focus on Years 4 and 5.
Junior schools in a Sustaining Work Group whose teachers in Year 4 and 5 are able to commit fully to this project are also eligible to apply, even if they are not currently involved in Mastering Number at Reception or KS1.
