Mastering Number Programme

A NATIONWIDE PROJECT FOR 2022/23 AIMED AT TEACHERS AND PUPILS IN RECEPTION, YEAR 1 AND YEAR 2

In 2021/22, all Maths Hubs organised communities of schools following the Mastering Number Programme. This programme developed solid number sense, including fluency and flexibility with number facts, which is expected to have a lasting impact on future learning for all children. The programme also involved high quality professional development for teachers.

Such was the success of the programme that a summer cohort has started, and we hope to be able to continue with a further cohort to start in September 22.

​A school’s participation involves teachers from each of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 (in one-form entry schools), the maths subject lead, and the headteacher. In small schools, there may be just one or two participating class teachers. In larger, multi-form schools, it is expected that lead teachers support colleagues in Reception and KS1 to adopt the same approach in their classes, to ensure consistency across the school.

EXPECTATIONS OF PARTICIPATING SCHOOLS

Schools chosen to participate in the Work Group commit to the following expectations:

•    The school will introduce Mastering Number in all Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes, in addition to their daily maths lesson (which could be shortened as a result of participation in this Work Group)
 

•    Teachers will be expected to contribute regularly to an online community led by the Work Group Lead, reflecting on the implementation and impact of the programme, as well as attending two, more formal online sessions, during 2022/23

•    Participants in the project will engage in all online synchronous and asynchronous professional development, including three live sessions, throughout the academic year

•    The school will provide any feedback required by the Maths Hub and participate in any evaluation processes required.

 

WHAT IS THE COST?

The Mastering Number project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
