We will be holding a workshop on Mathematics in the Early Years in the Summer Term. Below is some more information on how we teach Maths in Reception and how you can support your children at home.
Addition-children found different ways to make 10 using numicon, dice addition and counting on games.
Division- children chose a number and tried to share that many sweets between two friends or sharing nuts between the elephants.
These handouts were given out at the end of the session. They will help you to understand how mathematics is taught in the curriculum both indoors and outdoors. Also there are ideas for supporting your children at home.
Subtraction-children selected ten pieces of fruit and played a game where granny eats some and the children worked out how many were left..
Multiplication - children rolled a dice and doubled it matching the spots onto the ladybirds wings.
