One board, one year’s worth of activities!


Rapid Recall Whiteboards have been designed by teachers to promote discussion, maintain fluency and develop mastery in primary maths. The double-sided, A3 drywipe boards cover key National Curriculum Number objectives for each year group, while still revising the previous years’ concepts.

Step by Step:

1) In the top left corner of the board, you will see a symbol which varies according to the side of the board and year group.

2) Within this symbol write the chosen number – selected from the range stated below the shape.

3) Now complete the board and use the symbol as the chosen number – like algebra!

4) Once the board is completed, using the supplied answers, the pupil can either self-mark or get a peer, teaching assistant or teacher to mark the board.
