KS 1 Maths Curriculum

In recent years, the content and expectation of the mathematics curriculum has changed considerably. How the subject is taught is likely to be very different from when our current parents were at school. This is because the methods for teaching the early acquisition of number and mathematical skills have changed and developed over time.

To give parents a greater understanding of the mathematics curriculum and to be able to support their children at home, we provided a session to show how mathematics is taught in Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and 2).

The session covered the following subjects:

  • The maths curriculum
  • Number bonds
  • Addition
  • Subtraction
  • Division
  • Fractions
  • Year 2 SATs paper example questions
  • Homework in mathematics
