Mathematics

By providing a range of adult supported and child led activities the children will become familiar with the sorting, matching, ordering, sequencing and counting activities which form the basis for early mathematical development. 
 
The children will learn about mathematical language, identifying objects by shape, position, size, volume and number. 
 
A range of songs, games and books will also be used to help the children’s awareness of number sequences and the use of simple mathematical operations such as addition and subtraction.  They will become comfortable with numbers and ideas such as “heavier” or “bigger than”.
