Mastering Number

Mastering Number gives schools the opportunity to secure firm foundations in additive relationships and 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 Key Stage 1 with fluency in calculation and a confidence and flexibility with number relationships that exemplifies good number sense. Attention will be given to key knowledge and understanding needed in Reception classes and progression through KS1 to support progression in the future.


Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will have a teacher-led session of 10 to 15 minutes, in addition to their daily maths lesson, 3 – 4 times per week. These are designed to ensure that pupils develop fluency with, and an understanding of, number that is crucial to future success in maths and academic progress more generally.


Central to the programme is a small, abacus-like piece of equipment called a ‘Rekenrek’. In school we have enough of these for every child to work with one during their 'Mastering Number' sessions.
