Mastering number - Key Stage 1
EYFS and Key Stage 1 classes participate in Maths Club (Mastering Number) - a new initiative from the NCETM and Maths Hubs which thousands of school around the country are joining in with. The children have several quick, fun and pacy extra maths sessions several times per week where they develop and secure their number sense, use mathematical language and use a range of mathematical resources and representations.
