Mathsball™ and the National Curriculum
All sessions are designed to link into specific statutory requirements
Every Mathsball™ session has been researched to link with specific statutory learning requirements of the National Curriculum.
They are a fun and inclusive way to offer a unique delivery of mathematics in your school.
Mathsball™ allows children to take abstract mathematical concepts and apply them in a practical and useful way. It combines a muchloved pastime with an opportunity to use maths language and problemsolving skills in a reallife setting. I would highly recommend this programme.
We can tailor all of our sessions to meet your school's needs. Talk to us!
Our sessions are onehour in duration (approximately fifteenminutes preparation & discussion and fortyfive minutes delivery)
They target key areas of the curriculum in Reception, KS1, KS2 and Upper KS2. All primary years.
