Mathematical Development

Our children develop mathematical understanding through hands on experiences that relate to real-life, everyday situations. Through songs, role-play, games and problem-solving they learn the meaning of number, shapes and measures. We focus on counting, ordering and writing numbers, and adding and subtracting in a range of meaningful contexts often related to our Topic. Developing the language of Maths is crucial and the children explore what is the same/different, investigate patterns, learn comparatives such as taller/fewer/heaviest and are encouraged to explain their ideas and methods.
