Mathematics (maths) is an important part of learning for all children in the early years of a child's education and receiving a good grounding in maths is an essential life skill. ... It helps them to recognise, create and describe patterns, which is essential for early problem solving skills.

During KS1, it’s important for your child to get to grips with maths in a very practical, hands-on way. Working individually, as a class and in groups, they will be investigating, counting, playing number games and using everyday objects to help them solve problems and do simple calculations.

As they start to become more familiar with the language used in maths, they will be encouraged to talk about their methods for solving problems and presenting their results. Children will be given opportunities to deepen their learning by using their logic and reasoning skills in a range of real life contexts and problems.
