Mathematics involves providing our Reception children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers. We are also working on number recognition and forming our numbers when the children are ready to do so. Children can practise these skills in our role play area by counting out the plates and glasses. Counting also happens during small world when the farmer is counting his animals. Our aim is to give the children as many opportunities to develop and improve their skills. During the year we explore patterns and shapes and get the children involved by going on a shape hunt, create their own patterns and look at more famous ones. As a team we strive to make our learning fun and interactive. Using both indoors and outdoors as part of our learning space.
