# Number Facts Fluency sample resources

The Number Facts Fluency programme can be used for both main class teaching and interventions.

## Teaching Points and Activities

For each teaching step, in every stage of the programme, key teaching points are explained so that teachers have a good understanding of what children need to learn. The teaching points also introduce the models used in each section. The teaching points can be printed out for other adults working with the children to make sure the same language is used and the same points are emphasised. Suggestions for practical activities and games which introduce each concept are also provided for both the classroom and for at home.

Ten and A Bit Teaching Points

This pack contains all the Teaching Points and Activities for Ten and A Bit (Stage 4), including a home school communication page to help families understand what their children are learning and how they can support at home.

To see the Teaching Points and Activities for the first teaching step in every stage, along with the animations and exercises for those steps, sign up for FREE membership.

## Animations

A series of animations develops children's understanding of number and quantity. The animations expose the mathematical structures in number and calculation, and relate equation solving to every day contexts. This deepens understanding which supports fluency. The animations provided for each teaching step are progressive; scaffolds are withdrawn through each teaching sequence as the children build confidence and understanding.

The animations available on the portal include animations to support partitioning of each number to 10, and animations to support adding across 10.

## Progressive Pupil Exercises

There is a set of pupil exercises for each teaching step in the programme. The exercises can be printed out from the portal or snipped and inserted into lesson slides. Visual images are provided to support the understanding of each concept and provide scaffolding for the children. The exercises are progessive, with prompts gradually withdrawn as the children's fluency develops. All of the exercises come with Talking Tips at the bottom of the page. These tips provide support to adults on what to draw out on each page and the language to use to reinforce learning. Parents have found the talking tips very useful when sheets have been sent home.

Doubles and Near Doubles Exercises

This pack contains a selection of the exercises that support pupils learning doubles facts within 10, and using them to calculate near doubles, such as 4 + 3 (Stage 3, teaching step 6). Teaching children to "use what they know to work out what they don't yet know" is an important focus of the programme.

## Assessment

Assessment through conferencing is an essential part of the programme.  Assessment check points are built in at regular stages. Our assessment packs provide instructions, record sheets, and fact cards to make assessing children straightforward.
