Developing a strong grounding in number is essential so that all children develop the necessary building blocks to excel mathematically. Children should be able to count confidently, develop a deep understanding of the numbers to 10, the relationships between them and the patterns within those numbers. In addition, our Mathematics curriculum includes rich opportunities for children to develop their spatial reasoning skills across all areas of Mathematics including shape, space and measures.

In order to develop secure foundations in understanding number, we are part of the NCETM “Mastering Number” project. The project aims to secure firm foundations in the development of good number sense for all children from Reception through to Year 1 and Year 2. The aim over time is that children will leave KS1 with fluency in calculation and a confidence and flexibility with number. Attention will be given to key knowledge and understanding needed in Reception classes, and progression through KS1 to support success in the future. Mastering number sessions run in addition to our core Mathematics sessions as short bursts of deeper exposure to the key concepts underpinning number.
