Using manipulatives just 10 minutes per day

We are pleased to support a new project from Kerry Dalton of the North Star Teaching School Alliance and Head Teacher at Roecliffe Primary School.

Making Mathematics Count challenges teachers to use manipulatives every day for 6 weeks to develop children’s mastery of counting, place value and calculation.

  • Builds confidence across the whole school, in every classroom
  • Allows children to be 'hands-on' with mathematics
  • Uses easily available resources, both formal and informal

then let us and Kerry know how you're getting on!
