    Numeracy & Literacy in our Early Years Department

    Engaging Numeracy and Literacy Activities for Pre-Prep 1 Children

    The children in Pre-Prep 1 have been learning about literacy and numeracy. They have been engaged in activities such as making alphabet soup and creating prints with letter and number cutters. Number bingo and using Numicon materials have also been popular.

    Strengthening numeracy and literacy skills in early years education offers numerous benefits. Activities like alphabet soup, letter and number cutters, number bingo, and Numicon materials enhance children’s literacy and numeracy foundations. They develop a love for reading, writing, and communication while gaining number recognition, counting, and problem-solving skills. By nurturing these skills early on, we empower children to succeed academically and foster a lifelong love for learning.
