1st Class @ Number and 1st Class @ Number 2 - For children who need a helping hand with



At Greenside we can invite your child to take part in one of two 1st Class @ Numbers Programmes created by Edge Hill University.

   1st Class @ Number helps children who are about National Curriculum Leve 1c in Year 2 or in other year        groups to move towards Level 2.

   1st Class @ Number 2 helps children who are about National Curriculum Level 2c in Year 3 or in other year groups to move towards Level 3.


These programmes are delivered by teaching assistants to small groups of children 3 times per week for 8 weeks.  The lessons start at 8.30.

Trained teachng assistants work from detailed lesson plans, adapting the according to information gained from assessment and class teachers.  They help children to think and talk about their mathematics.

The 1st Class @ Number interventions have a Post Office Theme: Children use letters, parcels, postcards and house numbers to support their mathematics and write postcards to tell their class teacher or Miss Bowen about their achievements.  In each of the 5 topics there is an activity known as special delivery which is an activity for children to take home and shire with parents/carers.
