Reception – Mathematics

Developing a strong grounding in number is essential so that all children develop
the necessary building blocks to excel mathematically. Children should be able to
count confidently, develop a deep understanding of the numbers to 10, the
relationships between them and the patterns within those numbers. By providing
frequent and varied opportunities to build and apply this understanding – such as
using manipulatives, including small pebbles and tens frames for organising
counting – children will develop a secure base of knowledge and vocabulary from
which mastery of mathematics is built. In addition, it is important that the
curriculum includes rich opportunities for children to develop their spatial
reasoning skills across all areas of mathematics including shape, space and
measures. It is important that children develop positive attitudes and interests in
mathematics, look for patterns and relationships, spot connections, ‘have a go’,
talk to adults and peers about what they notice and not be afraid to make
