Ready Set Go

Ready Set Go Maths is a hands-on approach to learning mathematical concepts in Junior and Senior Infants. It is designed to enable children to develop and consolidate their understanding of numbers through activities and interactive games.

In Scoil Mhuire we have implemented this programme in Junior Infants. The Key message behind the programme is that children are engaged in active learning and there is an emphasis on the use of language to explain our mathematical thinking, what we are doing and why we are doing it. Ready, Set, Go Maths focuses on 4 main areas:

  • Sorting
  • Relationships and Operations
  • Counting and Recognition
  • Understanding Numbers.

Classroom teachers and special education teachers, work with the pupils in the class in smaller groups. Children work on three activity stations and one book work station each day spending 6 minutes at each station before rotating to the next station. Activities generally involve working with concrete materials and playing games.
