Mathematics

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

 

In Nursery, children receive an adult led maths input on a weekly basis which focus on areas for development as identified through observations. Next steps are based on NCETM early years progression documents which identify stages most children will progress through on their mathematical journey. Maths is accessible through different areas of indoor and outdoor provision, where adult interactions through questioning and use of resources helps children to achieve their next step in mathematical development.

 

In Reception, children follow the mastery scheme of ‘White Rose’ which transports children on their ‘journey to mastery’ learning the fundamentals behind the meanings of numbers to 20 and exploring other key mathematical areas, including shape and measurement. Children experience daily teaching inputs, followed by a weekly focused maths activity which builds upon this teaching. A maths area in class is used by children where they can independently access different mathematical resources. Maths is also accessible through different areas of indoor and outdoor provision, where adult interactions through questioning and use of resources helps children to achieve their next step in mathematical development.
