Code: SCH LNS04 Using Games to develop Number Sense

These twilight sessions will be an opportunity to share (and play!) games that will help to develop number sense and gain fluency with basic maths facts which underpin the Maths curriculum. Games are an excellent way to motivate reluctant or anxious learners as well as developing social skills. Each session will focus on a different type of game or equipment.

Games are particularly suitable for one to one or small group work, but have been successfully played in whole class sessions. The games can also be played at home. The games are aimed at pupils in primary who are taking longer to achieve maths fluency in the four operations, but most can be adapted to other age ranges or higher levels.

Participants will be given details of equipment they will need in order to play along. This will be the first time we have played games remotely in a training session, although we have successfully done this in remote teaching.

To play along in the first session, you will need:

• Five 1-6 dot dice
• Multisided dice – a minimum of two 0-9 dice one (a 1-4, 1-6, 1-12, 1-20 and percentile dice would also be useful)
• Alternatively a spinner or an online dice generator could be used
