Early Years Foundation Stage

Mathematics

Our programme supports children to develop:

  • understanding and ideas about how many, how much, how far and how big;
  • understanding and ideas about patterns, the shape of objects and parts of objects, and the amount of space taken up by objects
  • understanding that numbers help us to answer questions about how many, how much, how far and how big
  • understanding and ideas about how to use counting to find out how many; and
  • early ideas about the result of adding more or taking away from the amount we already have.
