New Wave Mental Maths
New Wave Mental Maths is a school-wide series that aims to strengthen pupils’ mental maths abilities; essential skills that underpin effective interaction with all aspects of the maths curriculum and problem solving situations.
- A 40-week programme divided into a convenient Monday to Friday daily format. Designed for daily use in the classroom or as a structured, consistent homework, with enough material for the whole school year.
