Our Programmes for Reception and Year 1 mainly focuses on Mathematics and English. Classes are held once a week for two hours. The Core Subjects at this stage comprises of Mathematics, English and Science. Within the two hours children learn Mathematics and English with Science incorporated in their lessons. As per the National Curriculum, we are aware that the teachers should use every relevant subject to develop children’s’ mathematical fluency. Confidence in numeracy and other mathematical skills is a precondition of success across the national curriculum and fluency in the English language is an essential foundation for success in all subjects. Therefore greater emphasis is given to continually improve children’s mathematical knowledge and the English Language from this age onwards at ARK Tuition.

We strongly oppose the use of calculators to be used as a substitute for good written and mental arithmetic at this stage. As per the Natinal Curriculum Calculators should only be introduced near the end of key stage 2 to support pupils’ conceptual understanding and exploration of more complex number problems, if written and mental arithmetic are secure.
