Positive Steps - Maths

A working party was set up following concerns raised at Birmingham SEN Maths Coordinators Meetings regarding the huge gap which now exists between the end of P8 and the new NC Year 1.

Following this the group applied for, and received funding from the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM), to continue and expand on this work.

Wave 3 Intervention Materials

The Wave 3 Materials, developed by the National Strategies,  were aimed at enabling children who were working at levels significantly below age- related expectations to secure the mathematical understanding they needed to increase their rate of progress.

Whilst the objectives relate to the 1999 Framework for teaching Mathematics, the booklets are full of excellent ideas, providing focused teaching activities which tackle fundamental errors and misconceptions. They should continue to be very beneficial for teachers trying to bridge the gap between P Levels and the new Year 1 curriculum.
