Key Stage 1
During their Key Stage 1 years at Haileybury Astana, our pupils build on the broad base of experiences from Kindergarten and continue to develop their social, numeracy and communication skills through a combination of play and multi-sensory learning activities. Counting and number games are used, with a strong emphasis on exploration and practical work. Pupils, when ready, are introduced to more formal maths concepts leading to working with all four number processes.
