Lead teacher participants will receive training and resources equipping them to give their class a daily short ‘number sense’ session as part of scheduled maths teaching. The programme will last for the whole school year.

Over the year, children will use a range of materials and representations.

The programme is having a big impact in our classroom. Children who don’t speak up at all in ‘regular’ maths lessons have the confidence to speak up and answer questions/use stem sentences. This is having an impact on their confidence in maths. Children’s ability to subitise quickly is really strong now, all hands go straight up when we show the rekenrek/bird/bus/dice arrangements. Children don’t need to sit and count as they would have before.

Our biggest success is how it is supporting SEND children. The rekenreks are really impactful and the daily fluency practice is really supporting them. The children are building confidence and using fingers less and using what they know to calculate.
