Maths in Foundation

  • Learning to count using 1-1
  • Number bones

Play is the natural way in which children learn. Our children are learning maths all the time through a wide variety of play experiences. Play is an effective way to foster Mathematical concepts and develop positive attitudes to maths. The children are really enjoying a lot of our practical maths activities.

Maths is everywhere as they begin to: 

• know and understand early maths language of measurement, shapes, spaces, positions, early    numbers, order and patterns

• know the sequence of numbers

• begin to understand positional words, e.g. in, on, outside

• show an awareness of time

• be aware of shapes

• be aware of 1-to-1 correspondence

• learn new vocabulary

• learn number rhymes and songs, e.g. one, two, buckle my shoe etc.

When we say a child “knows her numbers” what we often mean is that she can recite the names of numbers in ascending order. This is quite useful to be able to do, but it means very little in itself. Children need to come to know what the number system really means. They can be helped to do this through play.

Here are some of the ways children have been learning maths at school last week.
