Maths in EYFS


Children in EYFS, participate in short maths sessions daily. These are carefully planned for following the ‘Birth to 5 Matters’ statements and White Rose Maths Scheme of learning. Children are given time to explore mathematical concepts, test ideas, develop their understanding and practise taught skills through play. Maths can be found in all areas of our provision and children experience it in a purposeful and meaningful context within their play and daily routines. Our mud kitchen, water area, construction areas, large sand pit and domestic role play are just some of the areas in which children can explore number, shape, space and measures.


Can you child tell you what they have learnt today in Maths?
