Extra support

Extra Maths Support - Year 2

Each week, inevitably, there are some children who are unable to succeed on the age-related expected objectives. These extra support activities can be done by a teaching assistant with a small group of children. There are two activities for each week, linked to the maths in Hamilton’s plans for that week. Each activity consists of  a detailed but simple bullet-pointed lesson outline for the TA and a Child Sheet. These intervention activities, if used consistently as you go along, have the potential to make a lot of difference to the children who are below ARE.
