Key Stage 1


This is looking at helping children in Years 1 and 2, where we start with building the child up from the basics in developing their knowledge and understanding of mathematics through practical activity, exploration and discussion. We work with them on their counting, reading, writing, number ordering to 100 and beyond. Mental calculation skills and confidence is built in utilising this in different settings, gradually moving onto problem solving and relating this to KS1 English.


At level children are motivated and taught to speak confidently and listen to what others have to say. Reading and writing independently is encouraged and to explore their own experiences and imaginary worlds. This is then integrated together so that the child learn more appreciatively to express them in clear diction when speaking and writing.
