Early Maths

In Early years Maths is taught and learnt through play and practical experiences. Maths involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve skills in counting, understanding numbers, simple addition and subtraction problems and to describe shapes all linking to real life. As well as taught carpet sessions and focus groups, the indoor and outdoor provision are used to provide multiple opportunities to practice taught learning through play.

Much of the Maths curriculum in the early years focuses on a strong conceptual understanding of number, to develop that, we use a range of resources including: cubes, tens frames, compare bears, fingers, number fans, numicon and number lines.
