A specially trained teaching assistant at Arundale delivers 30 half-hour sessions to a group of up to four children, for 12-15 weeks. 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. A Post Office theme runs throughout, engaging children in real life contexts that are both stimulating and fun. Each topic starts with a simple assessment that helps the teaching assistant to tailor sessions to the children’s needs.
