Growing and Achieving together

Year R

Year R


Through our rich and varied curriculum we offer our children a wide variety of experiences, so that they become familiar and confident in using mathematics in everyday life.  


Counting is an essential part of early mathematical understanding and this is developed across the reception year through child initiated play and adult led learning. Children are taught to recite and recognise numerals zero to twenty in order to compare numbers and solve practical problems. Through rich first hand experiences the children will also explore 2D and 3D shapes and compare measures in a variety of contexts. The children are taught the use of correct mathematical vocabulary in order to help them reason and explain their thinking.
