Literacy & Numeracy Across the Curriculum
Using KS2 data to identify and target pupils with low confidence in numeracy, the programme was designed to spark enthusiasm, promote engagement and build confidence in using every day functional maths - working with interactive, problem solving games and activities. The programme also encourages Year 10 Maths Ambassadors to develop key leadership skills, consolidate their own knowledge and build positive relationships with KS3 pupils; by volunteering as peer mentors during these morning intervention sessions.
Within maths lessons, pupils across all year groups engage with and benefit from competing in the 10 minute Numeracy Ninja challenge 2-3 times per week. They particularly enjoy using the leader board to see progress made as they achieve new Ninja Belts!
