Welcome to Maths Counts
Welcome to this exciting new programme to support children as they embark on a journey to change their perception of mathematics. Carefully selected learners will work through a series of manageable learning steps, tackling mathematical challenges whilst developing the skill of ‘learning to learn’. Working with a Learning Partner, and using a bespoke Maths Counts digital application and Resources Box, learners will be supported to develop a deep understanding and ownership of their maths learning journey. They will be encouraged to face challenge with confidence and self-assurance, becoming resilient in the face of difficulty as they learn to love maths!
The Mead Community Primary School, Trowbridge, has been awarded a grant by the Education Endowment Fund (EEF) to develop, trial and implement a maths intervention for children in Key Stage 2. This is a wide-ranging programme of support that brings together years of experience in one-to-one intensive maths support. Maths Counts is supported and resourced by a online application which contains lessons, resources, ideas, feedback and motivation to be accessed by the child, Learning Partner, Lead Teacher and parents.
The Digital Tool
The Maths Counts ‘tool’ is a one-stop-shop digital application that has been populated with new National Curriculum content, setting out a progression of knowledge, skills and understanding in small achievable steps. It has been specifically designed to appeal to children and will allow their Learning Partners to access a range of relevant learning resources and lessons to support each learning objective. Evidence of learning can be easily uploaded in the form of documents, photographs, video clips or other media.
