Mastery in Maths
Lightning; because the Lightning Bolts project increases speed, fluency and recall.
Bolts; because this project bolts on to the curriculum, it’s an added extra.
Little Lightning Bolts: All about developing conceptual understanding of numbers to ten and how they relate to each other.
Lightning Bolts: Gives children experiences which develop their number sense to 100 and beyond. Activities enable children to create visual images of the number system which they can use to “know” maths facts, understand them, use them flexibly and with confidence.
Larger Lightning Bolts: Here the focus is on written methods of calculation. Progression is carefully structured so children remain calm and confident. Children take the time they need to master written methods and free up their brains to apply their skills and knowledge.
