In Reception, children start to work with numbers in a range of different ways. They will be encouraged to be curious and explore numbers by playing number games, singing counting songs, making models as well as being introduced to the ideas of addition and subtraction.
After Reception, your Year 1 child will be ready for some amazing growth. For many children, Year 1 is the year that they bloom as readers and mathematicians. Get ready to support your child's mathematical growth by learning about Year 1 maths skills.
In Year 2, children begin to work with larger numbers and develop a stronger understanding of place value. Students also learn everyday skills like telling the time, working with money and measuring. Find out how to support your Year 2 in learning all these new skills.
