MATHEMATICS

Children are taught about:

 

Number: counting, calculating, solving simple problems and making simple lists, tables and charts

 

Shape, space and measures: looking at, handling and describing the features of common shapes such as triangles, rectangles, squares, cubes, hexagons, pentagons, cylinders and spheres; describing positions, directions and movements and right angles; working and measuring with units of time, weight, length and capacity.

 

Using and applying mathematics involves doing practical tasks and talking about mathematical problems. Children are taught to reason about problems and solve them. They communicate their thinking using objects, pictures, diagrams, words, numbers and symbols. They do sums in their heads.

All children take part in a daily Numeracy Lesson based on the National Numeracy Strategy Framework.
