Every Child Counts

This is an intervention designed for KS2 children who need further support at the level of the Year 2 curriculum.


1stClass@Number is delivered by our specially trained teaching assistant to children in Years 3 & 4. Up to 30 half-hour sessions are taught to a group of up to four children, for 10 -15 weeks. Whilst doing the intervention the children continue to take part in their normal class mathematics lessons.


The lessons focus on number and calculation, developing children’s mathematical understanding, communication and reasoning skills. Stimulating, enjoyable games and activities engage the children and build their confidence. Each topic starts with a simple assessment that helps the teaching assistant to tailor sessions to the children’s needs. The children have a dedicated learning space and their progress and attainment is closely monitored by the class teacher.
