It all adds up for King's Lynn company
Lynn-based business Learning Resources, an educational toys company, has collaborated with prominent educational professional-buying organisation ESPO to successfully deliver 360,000 maths learning aids called Rekenreks to UK primary schools.
Working closely with Learning Resources’ strong supply chain network, the two companies delivered 360,000 Rekenreks to over 6,000 schools including schools in Lynn and greater Norfolk.
The Rekenreks will be used by children in early years foundation stage as part of a new mastering number programme currently underway in selected primary schools.
The Rekenreks were supplied free of charge to schools.
Dennis Blackmore, learning resources managing director said: "Learning Resources is proud to support this initiative by being the supplier of these important learning aids to our schools.
"Sourcing the very best products to support education is what we’ve been doing for over 40 years.
Kristian Smith, ESPO chief officer said: "It’s been a real pleasure to help bring this programme to life, directly benefitting the learning outcomes of the children."
A rekenrek is a hands-on maths learning aid and counting frame that helps students build a solid understanding of several early years maths concepts.
The textured beads of the Learning Resources 20-bead sensory Rekenrek make it accessible to a wide range of students, including visually-impaired children.
