# Writing - Numbers

This Writing Numbers quiz helps KS1 children learn to write the word and not draw the sign. It’s important for children to know that numbers should be portrayed differently in English than when used in Maths lessons. This will give them an extra feather in the literacy cap!

During your Maths or Numeracy lessons you can write 1, 2, 3 but when you are writing a story you should write the words. See if you can remember how to write numbers as words.
