How does it work?
1stClass@Number comes ready-made with detailed session guidance and extensive resources. A specially trained teaching assistant delivers 24-30 half-hour sessions to a group of up to four children. The sessions focus on number and calculation, developing children’s mathematical understanding, communication and reasoning skills. The sessions are lively and active, engaging children in real life contexts that are both stimulating and fun. Each topic starts with a simple assessment that helps the teaching assistant to tailor sessions to the children’s needs.

• They made an average Number Age gain of 13 months in only 3.5 months - over 3 times the expected progress.
