This collection offers 36 whole-class arithmetical starters for junior pupils. They're challenging and easy to use and each is matched with Numeracy Strategy objectives. All offer follow-up ideas as well. P> BEAM materials are always sound educationally and produced to high standards. The unique format (pages are a little over A5 in size) means the book will stand open on any convenient table or shelf.

Unless you're very confident about the range and quality of your starter library you'll want to see this collection and the others - this is the fifth in the series - as well.
