Numeracy Key Stage 1

Curriculum Co-ordinator: Stephanie Morris

Numeracy in the Pre-Prep involves developing both confidence and competency with numbers and measures. At this stage, it is important that these skills are taught using practical resources; we aim to ensure that children enjoy the subject through practical activities which are both cross-curricular and in a context relevant to their experience.

We lay the foundations for mathematics higher up the school, through teaching a progression of core number facts, an understanding of shape, space and measure and data handling. Through practical maths challenges and investigations we also encourage children to think for themselves so that they can solve problems in a variety of contexts.

Written methods of recording are introduced and children are encouraged to develop and choose ways of recording which support their thinking and calculations. We aim to challenge the children and provide them with opportunities to practise and apply their learning.
