This programme shows how the resourcefulness of teaching assistants at one primary school is supporting maths both in and out of the classroom.
The TAs at Glenbrook Primary School have developed games and activities to help teach maths.
Sue's card game reinforces some essential basic skills for "counting-on" and "change from a pound" exercises. She also monitors the school maths challenge to see which children are struggling with mental arithmetic.
Sophie uses the mini computer Roamers to do some work with angles, distance and estimation, as well as using art on the walls and in the class to help with times tables.
Elaine adapts a variety of playground games to add a maths element and develops some games for wet play days.
