Curriculum – Maths

At Cassiobury Infant and Nursery School, Mathematics is taught using the The Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework (Nursery & Reception) and The National Curriculum for Mathematics in Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2).


Teaching Maths in the EYFS (Nursery & Reception)

The EYFS Framework sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

There are seven areas of learning and development that must shape educational programmes in early years settings (3 Prime and 4 Specific areas). All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected; the area that links to the acquisition of Mathematical skills is within ‘Mathematics’

Teaching Math in KS1 (Years 1 and 2)

At Cassiobury Infants and Nursery School we follow the National Curriculum for Mathematics.

The National Curriculum for Mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:

· become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.

· reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language

· can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and nonroutine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

In #CassInfMaths this week we are learning about subtraction to 20. Today we used counters and tens frames to work out the answer.

This week in maths we are learning to partition the number 5.
The children have been practicing their partitioning by sing ‘5 little speckled frogs.’
They then had a got at writing a number sentence to match how many frogs were in the pool and on the log.


In #CassInfMaths we have been practising our number bonds to 20 using the counters, tens frames and Rekenreks. Can you spot a pattern?


Today in #CassInfMaths we played a fun game to practise addition to 20. We threw quoits into hoops and then added the numbers in the hoops using a number line . @HedgehogCassInf
