Number Sense and Fluency in Key Stage 1: Workshop for Parents

Number Sense and Fluency in Key Stage 1: Workshop for Parents


On Tuesday 1st November, we held a very successful maths workshop for Key Stage 1 parents. Over the last couple of years, we have participated in a research project to develop our children’s number sense and fluency in Years 1 and 2. We discussed findings from the research and shared some of the activities we use in school.  Parents who attended our morning session also visited classrooms and played games designed to develop children’s confidence, reasoning skills and fluency.


Here are some of the things that parents said about the workshop:

‘it’s interesting to know how the children learn maths. It taught me some new strategies!’

‘It’s great to be able to link in with what children are doing at school in the home.’

‘Useful presentation  and combination of activities to make it fun’.

‘Both teachers clearly have excellent subject knowledge! J’!

‘We will play the games shown today at home.’


We’re really pleased that parents will be using the strategies they learnt at home and playing games to help their children’s maths.
