Thanks to your support, we’re delighted to announce that we’ve won a £250 grant from Venator’s Bright Ideas Fund to purchase Maths equipment for the children to further promote the children’s understanding of Maths!

Effective Maths teaching in a first school relies heavily on practical resources and manipulatives.  We provide this style of learning effectively in the Early Years, but need to continue to develop this further throughout Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

This grant will therefore be used to purchase Numicon resources which we have found provides the development required as they’re based on a concrete-pictorial-abstract approach, and encourage children to explore Maths using structured imagery and apparatus in order to understand and explain mathematical concepts.
