Mathematics - FS2

Shape, space and measure

 

At the end of FS2 children should be able to:

 

  • Use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems.

  • Recognise, create and describe patterns.

  • Explore the characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.

 

Resources are used for the children to explore these concepts independently; adult led activities challenge and develop their understanding further.     (Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage)

 

In FS2 we also learn our doubles to at least 5+5 and begin to explore number bonds to 5 and then 10.

 

Number

 

At the end of FS2 children should be able to:

 

  • Count reliably with numbers 1-20, place them in order and say which is one more or one less than a given number.

  • Use objects to add and subtract two single digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer.

  • Solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.

 

A stimulating environment is provided where children can explore numbers independently or with an adult.
