Star maths starters : a fresh approach to mental mathsYear 1
Part of the Star Maths Starters series
This series is designed to support teachers in delivering fresh, lively and interactive mental maths starters in line with the renewed Framework.
The series includes six 48-page books covering Years 1-6, each with an accompanying CD-ROM.
The Framework now requires teachers to think about the purpose of each oral and mental starter under six broad headings: Rehearse; Recall; Refresh; Refine; Read; and, Reason.
The 30 starters in each year cover these six 'Rs' as well as a range of objectives across the seven strands of the renewed Framework for Maths.
Every starter includes a whole class interactive activity.
The interactive resources on CD-ROM can be used on every interactive whiteboard and many of them are open-ended enabling them to be used over several sessions.
Comprehensive teacher's notes are provided for each activity in each full-colour book and include annotated screenshots providing an at-a-glance guide to using the activities.
