Children practise and improve their skills in counting numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems, and to describe shapes, space, and measures.


We encourage children to explore and talk about their developing mathematical understanding. We teach early counting and number recognition skills through singing, games and practical experience.


Aspects of mathematical development are explored through all areas of the curriculum, and day to day classroom life; the class dinner numbers are used by the children for daily calculations.  Children use increasingly precise mathematical language and solve problems.


Children learn to add and subtract sets of objects in practical situations. They explore shape, pattern and measures both indoors and outside.
