In addition to White Rose Maths teaching, Year 1 and Year 2 will be teaching an additional 10 minutes of maths teaching a day designed by the NCETM to build number sense. It is fully funded by the NCETM. FS will use a blend of the NCETM Number Sense scheme and White Rose. See overviews for Number Sense below.

We know how important it is to reduce cognitive load therefore we invest in Timetables Rockstars and NumBots. The apps allow the children to rehearse their number facts. We recommended three minutes a day as practise little and often will move the knowledge into our long term memories. We also use MyMaths for children to rehearse other areas of Maths at home. This also helps us to reduce the amount of paper being consumed by the school.
