A King’s Lynn company is helping thousands of students across Britain in maths lessons.
Learning Resources has supplied 360,000 rekenreks free of charge to help children learn maths.
They are used at early years foundation stage as part of a project called Mastering Numbers.
Rekenreks (pictured above) are counting frames with textured beads on them which help students get an early idea of maths and can be used by a wide range of students including those with visual impairments.
Dennis Blackmore, managing director of Learning Resources, said: “We are proud to support his initiative by being the supplier of these important learning aids to our schools.
The organisation ESPO helped deliver them. Its chief officer Kristian Smith added: “Sourcing the very best products to support education is what we have been doing for over 40 years. It’s been a real pleasure to bring this programme to life directly benefiting the learning outcomes of children.”
