An intensive intervention for children who really struggle
If your child is working at a level below their classmates, they may be selected for a place on the Numbers Count programme. This means that they will receive intensive 1 to 1 or very small group support from our specially trained Numbers Count teacher, Mrs Myhill. She will aim to accelerate your child’s learning so that they can work much closer to the level of their class.
What is it like?
There are two versions; Numbers Count for children in year 1 to 3 and Numbers Count 2 for children in Years 4 to 6. However, the programme is different for every child. The teaching is specially designed and delivered by the Numbers Count teacher to meet your child’s individual need. Your child will receive at least 40 thirty minute lessons. The time slot of each lesson is varied throughout the week to ensure the least disruption to their class work.
The lesson takes place in our special Numbers Count area. It is highly interactive and practical. Mrs Myhill will help your child to develop mathematical vocabulary and to talk about how they do maths. Your child will still have a daily maths lesson with their class.
Your child will take a short test with Mrs Myhill at the start and at the end of the programme, to measure their progress.
