Mastering Number

Mastering Number - Reception, Year 1 and Year 2


At Joseph Turner, teachers in Reception and KS1, deliver a daily session of 10 to 15 minutes in addition to their daily math's lesson of Mastering Number. This is a new programme offered in 2021/22 by the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM). It aims to develop solid number sense, including fluency and flexibility with number facts, which will have a lasting impact on future learning for all children. The aim over time is that children will leave KS1 with fluency in calculation and a confidence and flexibility with number.
