‘We Care, We Share, We Value’

Maths at Home

Mathematics in the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum comes under two strands, each of which has an Early Learning Goal attached.

By the end of Reception, children should be able to:

Early Learning Goal - "Children 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. They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing."

Shape, Space and Measures
Early Learning Goal - "Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them."

Below are some websites which you might find useful for practising maths with your child/ren at home.
