In Nursery and Reception, children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. The maths section is called Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy. In this area, children are supported in developing their understanding of Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy in a broad range of contexts in which they can explore, enjoy, learn, practise and talk about their developing understanding. They are provided with opportunities to practise and extend their skills in these areas so they gain confidence and competence in their use.
Children's mathematical development occurs as they seek patterns, make connections and recognise relationships through finding out about and working with numbers and counting, with sorting and matching and with shape, space and measures.
Key Stage One and Key Stage Two
From Year 1 to Year 6 children follow a specified programme of learning. Each term, the children cover 5 key mathematical areas:
Block A: Counting, partitioning and calculating
Block B: Securing number facts, understanding shape
Block C: Handling data and measures
Block D: Calculating, measuring and understanding shape
Block E: Securing number facts, relationships and calculating
