MATHEMATICAL DEVELOPMENT

With a big focus of Maths this week, the children will be exploring many different types of math. Building on their current understanding of numbers and values, the children will explore other things that can be counted. The children will be invited to search for numbers in their environment and count things in our outdoor environment, such as leaves, twigs, toys, trees and much more. Using our previous learning about less and more, the children will be invited to explore the math games area ourside the Reception classes and guess what number has more coins and what one has less. The will be invited to estimate how many items are in different sized containers and use their new writing skills to write their guess down. 

Key Vocabulary:  How much? How many? Long, short, small, big, pur, fill, empty, full, shapes and numbers.

The children will be encouraged to explore the outdoor area and collect items of interest. The will be ask to organise their findings, for emaple, all leaves in one pile and twigs in another. They will be ask to count their findings. How many leaves? How many twigs? And they will be ask to discuss what they collected. What do we have more of? What do we have less of?
