Mathematics

Involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; to describe shapes, spaces, and measures.

Ideas to support learning at home:

  • Sing number rhymes
  • Count out everyday objects such as fish fingers at teatime.
  • Ask children to point out numbers on doors.
  • Ask children to set the table for four people.
  • Say which has more or less in a group of objects such as apples and pears.
  • Encourage children to share out a packet of sweets between two people.
  • Play hopscotch or skittles.
  • Talk about shapes in the environment.
  • Recognise and recreate patterns such as a tower of lego or a pattern on a bedspread.
  • Develop positional language by placing a teddy on, under, behind, beside a chair and asking them to tell you where it is.
  • When cooking encourage children to measure out ingredients.
