Maths Language group

The objective of the Maths Language Group is to support children who have difficulty in picking up, and using, new mathematical terminology.  Before a new topic is introduced in class, these children are taught the meaning of the maths language in a small group, in a quiet place and at a slower pace, with plenty of time to ask questions and do practical activities to reinforce their learning.  Consequently, when the subject is then introduced to the whole class, they can understand what is required of them and not be lost at the instruction part of the lesson.
