Download the Nursery 3 Numeracy Scheme of work as created by the National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools(NAPPS) as a guide for educators and parents to teach kids.

`Home » Nursery 3 Scheme of Work » Nursery 3 Numeracy Scheme of Work`

This NAPPS Nursery 3 Numeracy curriculum is designed to establish a solid mathematical foundation for young learners. It will focus on basic math skills like: counting, number recognition, and simple arithmetic.

Topics to be taught are fundamental numeracy concepts including numbers, shapes, patterns, and measurements. These topics will help improve children’s understanding of math.

The aim of the Nursery 3 Numeracy curriculum is to:

- Help young learners become more confident in their basic math abilities.
- Introduce them to a little more advanced mathematical concepts so they don’t find it so difficult as they progress

At the end of Nursery 3, children should be able to recognize and count numbers up to 20, identify basic shapes, and understand simple patterns and measurements.
