Mastering Number at Reception and KS1
Supporting pupils to develop good number sense
Recruitment now open for 2024/25
A national programme now in its third year, offers schools that have not previously been involved in Mastering Number the opportunity 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.
