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 much-loved pastime with an opportunity to use maths language and problem-solving skills in a real-life 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 one-hour in duration (approximately fifteen-minutes preparation & discussion and forty-five minutes delivery)

They target key areas of the curriculum in Reception, KS1, KS2 and Upper KS2All primary years.
