In Key Stage 1 children develop their knowledge and understanding of mathematics through practical activities and discussion. They learn to count, read, write and order numbers to 100 and beyond.

They develop a range of mental calculation skills.  They learn about shape, space and measurement through practical activity, which builds on their understanding of the world. They begin to use mathematical language, explain how to solve problems and work things out.

During Key Stage 2 pupils move from counting to calculating fluently with all four number operations.  Pupils explore features of shape/space and develop their measuring skills. They discuss and present their methods and reasoning using a wider range of mathematical language, diagrams and charts.

Teachers use the Primary Framework Strategy as a planning tool for the teaching of mathematics.
