Maths numeracy support are selected at transition. Students in Year 7 who are below level 4 are selected. Year 8 numeracy support will be for students that missed out at year 7 to literacy and/or project.
Maths Concepts is based on basic numeracy skills, each lesson consists of 4 maths concepts.
We mainly concentrate on Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and fractions. Using different strategies to support their learning. Maths numeracy support is very multisensory.
In addition to this, timestables are reinforced throughout the lessons, either by using starters or plenary games, helping to enhance their mental arithmetic. The programme implements tests every 10 lessons and we also test their speed and knowledge of times tables each term as well.
The aim for year 7 is to bring them to level 4 and be able to access the maths curriculum.
For students at level 2 are supported through small groups or one to one support. Starting with number bonds to 10, times tables and place value using multisensory approach – using objects and pictures to support their learning.
For the students that do not qualify for maths nurture, we will also screen for dyscalculia. We will then work out a personalised programme for the student. We are currently looking at online programmes to support these learners both in school and at home.
