Over the course of key stage 1, studying children develop skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing. Children learn to express themselves creatively and imaginatively and to communicate with others effectively. Children learn to speak confidently and listen to what others have to say. They begin to read and write independently and with enthusiasm. They use language to explore their own experiences and imaginary worlds.
At KS1 we want children to develop their knowledge and understanding of maths through practical activity, exploration and discussion. They will learn to count, read, write and order numbers to 100 and beyond. The children will develop a range of mental skills and use these confidently in different settings. They will learn about shape and space through practical activities that build on their understanding of their immediate environment. They will begin to grasp mathematical language, using it to talk about their methods and explain their reasoning when solving problems.
