Numerical Reasoning Speaking Frames


Numerical Reasoning Speaking Frames

These speaking frames support the progressive development and reinforcement of learners' numeracy skills and mathematical language from Nursery to Year 11. Mathematical talk is essential in developing learner's understanding of mathematics. If learners are supported to articulate the process, they will clarify their thinking.

The speaking frames have been aligned to the Curriculum for Wales: revised Areas of Learning for the Foundation Phase and the revised programmes of study for Key Stage 2 and 3. The sentence starters for each year group are appropriate to the end of year outcomes and are an effective vehicle for developing numerical reasoning.



  • numerical reasoning speaking frame mats for learners
  • large speech bubbles of each sentence starter to support introduction of the speaking frames and a guide for using the resources
