My experiences teaching maths mastery with children taking their first steps in maths have been so powerful, creative and fun that I wanted to share them. I hope you enjoy the resources and teaching early maths mastery as much as I do!

Try this early years subitising game for a traditional tales topic or pupils who enjoy the story of Little Red Riding Hood. In this fun animated presentation, Little Red must look out for the big bad wolves as they pop up then disappear quickly in the forest. Can students spot the number patterns and tell how many wolves there were without counting them individually?

Recognition of numbers 1 - 5 in this way, for example the dots on a dice, is known as perceptual subitising and is an important step in early maths when students are developing an understanding of number.

There are lots of opportunities for subitising out there and I strongly recommend teaching your pupils this key skill.
