Maths in EYFS
We aim to ensure that all children develop firm mathematical foundations in a way that is engaging, and appropriate for their age. We provide a variety of practical, concrete activities and games that support key mathematical concepts both inside and out. There are six key areas of early mathematics learning which collectively provide a platform for everything children will encounter as they progress through their maths learning at primary school, and beyond: cardinality and counting, comparison, composition, pattern, shape and space, and measures. We provide many opportunities for mathematical investigation and children are encouraged to 'have a go'. We encourage a positive attiutde to maths and support the children to find connections and to identify patterns and relationships. Our curriculum provides rich opportunities for children to develop their spatial reasoning skills including shape, space and measures.
