What groups will my child be in?
Once your child has completed their online assessment they are placed in their maths and literacy groups according to their learning needs. This allows for a personalised experienced, teachers plan specifically each term to meet the needs of the children in each group. You will be notified of your child's groups via email.
â€‹
Although our groups are loosely based on year groups  children are not aware of this and simply know which group they are in. As they make progress you will receive a progress report and children will move to the next group when ready.
â€‹
All of our group sessions are specifically planned for the current cohort and are prerecorded to enable large numbers of children to benefit from the learning at any one time. Find out more about how it works here.

Bears
Our bears sessions focus on building confidence
and building on and developing
a strong understanding of basic maths concepts.
Fun and engaging these sessions offer the
opportunity for children to dive deeper into problem
solving, pause and repeat the prerecorded lessons
videos and learn more independently.

Stags
Our Stags are moving on from the basics and tackle a
variety of challenging word maths problems and
arithmetic. Maximising their learning by undergoing termly
assessments our teachers are able to tailor make the
learning programme taking children beyond primary and
into secondary maths learning in some areas.
