Ellie McCann, a former Primary school teacher, is part of the Maths specialist team at Third Space Learning, helping to close the social attainment gap through one-to-one tuition via an online platform of lessons for KS1 and KS2. Real tutors teach over 3,500 UK primary pupils a personalised Maths lesson every week, focusing on building confidence and accelerating progress, as well as raising attainment. To find out how we can help pupils in your school, book a demo here.
For our pupils to become able and confident mathematicians in Primary school, it is essential that they have a bank of key number facts they have learnt stored away, which they can draw on at any time. However, we must work to incorporate new ways to help them memorise these facts so that they have them at their disposal whenever they’re needed.
