Learning to think mathematically:

How to launch the Rekenrek to support number sense in your own school

The Rekenrek is a tool that was created in the Netherlands and has been translated to be called an ‘arithmetic rack’ or ‘calculating frame’. It is a unique tool that allows children to develop number sense and we are very excited about its potential, particularly at the current time. There are free virtual versions of this tool that schools can use for interactive whole class or group teaching and it will complement schools’ current use of representations and structures such as tens frames, Cuisenaire rods and Numicon.

Our own team has first-hand experience of launching the Rekenrek in our own schools and we have seen the positive impact it is already having on our own pupils’ confidence with fluency, reasoning and problem solving. We will be discussing how you too can approach a planned and progressive roll out for the Rekenrek in your school to support fluency and Teaching for Mastery, should you wish to.

WEBINAR: Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 3 Transition

What does ‘Secondary Ready’ look like post-lockdown?

How can we most effectively work together in 2021 in the best interest of children?

Are you a teacher in KS2 or a maths teacher or department lead in KS3? Are you interested in teaching for mastery and delving deeper into the curriculum implications of the latest lockdown? Would you like to be part of the conversation about how we should prioritise the curriculum in 2021-22 in order to best prepare pupils in upper KS2 for secondary school success? Are you interested in working with teachers in both KS2 and KS3 to focus on pedagogy in mathematics teaching and learning?
