Focuses on children developing their knowledge and understanding of mathematics by problem solving. They use numbers in daily activities and develop a range of methods for working mentally with numbers in order to solve problems. They investigate the properties of shape and sort, match, sequence and compare objects and create simple patterns and relationships. Chess as a subject forms part of the mathematics development.

The Cambridge Numeracy programme covers all aspects of Mathematics, including Sorting and Patterning, Number, Base Ten, Shape, Measurement, Location and Arrangement, Chance, Data and Problem Solving. Students are introduced to a variety of concepts through both “hands on” and “abstract” tasks using the Numicon programme.
