At St Michael's the children are taught Maths everyday! As teachers, we work hard to deliver the curriculum with passion and encourage the children to develop a love of numbers!
The content taught is in line with the National Curriculum and teachers make sure that the children become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, are able to reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry are able to solve problems by applying concepts they understand.
Maths is taught as one of the seven areas of learning in the Foundation Stage Curriculum. It is divided into two main area, Number and Shape, Space and Measure. In Nursery, the children learn to count and recognise numbers through whole class teaching sessions. Most of their learning is done through play based activities. In Reception, as well as learning through play, the children have longer whole class teaching sessions which begin to develop their knowledge of number and progress into their use of number. To assess, we use the development matters document which tracks children through the ages and stages. At the end of Reception we currently complete the Foundation Stage Profile which gives children a judgement against the Early learning goals.
