Mathematics

Aspects of mathematics includes; numbers and shape, space and measure.

During regular adult-led mathematics sessions, children work in small groups and as a whole class.  Practical sessions provide opportunities for active learning.  Provision for enhanced learning is accessible during child-initiated sessions. 

Adult led activities, practical sessions and continuous provision enable children to develop skills to begin to;

  • count reliably with numbers from one to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number.;
  • using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer;
  • solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing; 
  • use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems;
  • recognise, create and describe patterns;
  • explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.
