Stated learning outcomes for this course

1st[email protected] enables Teaching Assistants to make a real difference for children who have fallen behind in mathematics

This course trains teaching assistants to deliver the 1st[email protected] intervention.

1st[email protected] is an innovative and highly effective numeracy intervention, delivered by a specially trained teaching assistant to small groups of children who need a helping hand to keep up with their peers.

It is an Every Child Counts programme, developed by Edge Hill University.  High-quality training enables teaching assistants to deliver it effectively and to strengthen their support for mathematics across the school.

There are three versions of the intervention, each with its own course:

Becoming 1st[email protected] is for children mainly in Year 1 who need support to secure the Early Learning Goal for Number.

1st[email protected] is for children mainly in Year 2 who need support around the level of the Year 1 National Curriculum

1st[email protected] 2 is for children mainly in Years 3-4 who need support around the level of the Year 2 National Curriculum

How it works

A teaching assistant delivers 24-30 half-hour lessons to a group of up to 4 children.  The lessons focus on number and calculation, developing children’s numeracy and communication skills whilst developing their mathematical thinking.  Stimulating, enjoyable games and activities engage the children and build their confidence.

It all comes ‘ready-made’ with detailed plans and extensive resources.  For added flexibility, each unit of 6 lessons starts with a familiarisation activity that helps the teaching assistant to tailor the lessons to the children’s needs.

 “This is the best programme we have ever had for teaching assistants. It was not only effective but children gained an enthusiasm for their maths work.”
Niki di Palma, Deputy Head Teacher, Redlands PS, Tower Hamlets
