Subitising as a progression from KS1 into KS2

Subitising is the skill of ‘seeing’ an amount of objects without counting them individually. It’s a well-known concept for development in EYFS practice, but we can actually extend this essential skill into the rest of the primary maths curriculum to support fluency, reasoning and problem solving.

  • Clear explanations of ‘conceptual’ and ‘perceptual’ subitising
  • Why subitising is so important as a foundational skill in KS1 and KS2
  • Active ideas for both KS1 and KS2 classrooms

About this course

In recent years, the term ‘subitising’ has become firmly embedded in EYFS practice, but we shouldn’t limit this vital skill to just the smallest numbers and the youngest children. It can be extended into KS1 and KS2 to help children quickly recognise fractions, percentages and time, support them in bridging through tens, and develop their understanding and retention of multiplication facts.

This training will explore:

  • What subitising is, and how it is used to develop a secure sense of number
  • How subitising can support confidence in arithmetic and mental acuity
  • How we might develop a progression in subitising


  • Senior leadership and Maths leads
  • Class teachers
  • KS1, KS2
