The benefits of studying Lower Primary Maths

Developing children’s Maths skills introduces them to concepts that are essential in everyday life and play a crucial part in their development as successful learners.

From an early age children will delight in using Maths to solve a problem. As their confidence grows, they will start to notice patterns, find creative approaches to solve problems, and learn to explore and explain their ideas clearly.

Our Lower Primary Maths homeschooling courses will help your child develop the foundations of essential skills in number, calculations, fractions, measurement and geometry.

Our courses follow a systematic approach to teaching, through engaging child centred tasks, that will motivate and empower your child.

For more details of the curriculum see a summary of the areas of study here: Year 1  /  Year 2

Our Lower Primary Maths course lays the foundations for children to transition smoothly to our Upper Primary Maths course.

I’m most impressed that Lily can now start to read and write thanks to Wolsey Hall college. I think she is now well ahead of her class mates. We live in South East Asia and my daughter is 5.5 yrs old. Her school was closed during the China Virus lockdown for several months. We have nearly finished Part 1 – 12 week lessons in English and Maths. English is not my daughters ‘mothers tongue’ as such; and before starting the course she could not read any words and could only write basic words. At week 12 I’m very impressed with her as she can now read and write so well. Nearly every lesson there’s a lot of practice with ‘blending’ words for reading and ‘splitting’ sounds for spelling. It really works and she enjoys it as well. The Maths lessons are also good with many different teaching techniques. All resources can be downloaded and thus the guided teaching is easy to follow. Highly recommend this homeschooling college.

My daughter’s reading has improved so much, that I’m amazed daily how well she can read. I really like the way the course is designed to teach phonics and graphemes. It gives my daughter confidence to try herself to write new words. She does not ask me anymore for help.

Thank you for a wonderful year of exciting and challenging studies! This year my daughter has become a more clever and responsible human being. The English course was so colourful and exciting with brilliant texts and clever grammar approach. Natalia has improved her punctuation so much!

Our children (almost 13 and 11) have been students of Wolsey Hall Oxford since 2017. Every year we achieve the perfect balance of flexibility and academic excellence. Our Student Progress Manager works closely with us tailoring the education of our children month by month, something that could never be achieved in any other type of schooling. The tutors for each subject are always available to answer questions and mark promptly the monthly assignments, which follow the National Curriculum to the highest possible standards. The wider support team of Wolsey Hall is also very responsive and we enjoy the option of joining other students in after-school clubs and activities that create as much of a school community life as one would like to get involved in.

Our experience with Wolsey Hall Oxford has been excellent! Ella is thriving on her Primary homeschooling courses. She is enjoying the creativeness of the English programme and how it allows learning while bringing in her own interests such as a biography on her favourite author.
