This is the first of similarly focused intervention materials that are to be developed for mathematics. Teachers will find these materials useful when planning their teaching to help children working around the level 3 to 4 border make good progress.

The materials are designed to be used with children who are at risk of not making the necessary progress to move from level 3 to secure level 4 and therefore not meeting age-related expectations by the end of Year 6.
