KS3 Numeracy Year 8
Free Sample Resources

Explore 'Place Value' to see a complete unit of building numeracy resources and PowerPoint presentations. These comprehensive materials can be used by a maths or non-specialist teacher or by a TA to develop numeracy skills and confidence in students who are not yet at the expected level for their year group.

Each Building Numeracy unit contains a week’s worth of teaching for students who need to build their understanding of numeracy. Every aspect of numeracy is explicitly explained, so they can be taught by a teacher or a TA.
