Summary

Makaton for Maths is a new resource for all pupils at Key Stage 1 who struggle with understanding mathematical concepts.

In 2004 St Andrews CE Primary School (a Beacon School in Brighton and Hove LEA) approached Makaton with a view to developing a number of key mathematical concepts in symbol and sign. Together, Makaton and staff from several schools in Brighton and Hove developed a symbols and signs resource with training for all school staff.

The resulting Makaton for Maths resource is designed to help children with learning disabilities and those who generally need additional language support in mathematics at Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum.
