Ready Set Go Maths is a hands-on approach to learning mathematical concepts in Junior and Senior Infants. It is designed to enable children to develop and consolidate their understanding of numbers through activities and interactive games.
The Key message behind the programme is that children are engaged in active learning and there is an emphasis on the use of language to explain our mathematical thinking, what we are doing and why we are doing it. Ready, Set, Go Maths focuses on 4 main areas:
- Relationships and Operations
- Counting and Recognition
- Understanding Numbers.
Classroom teachers and teachers from our Learning Support Team, supported by parent volunteers, work with the pupils in the class in smaller groups. Children work at a ‘station’, usually doing one activity per day. Activities generally involve working with concrete materials and playing games.
