Mathematics involves providing children with opportunities to develop and
improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating
simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces, and measure.
Children count reliably with numbers from 1 to 20, place them in
order and say which number is one more or one fewer than a given
number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two
single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer.
They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.
Shape, Space And Measures
Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight,
capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare
quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise,
create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of
everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language
to describe them.
