The Shape, Space and Measure learning we do will be directly linked to the number of the week. We will explain this further during our Maths Meeting.
This half term, we will be covering the following:
- Children begin to categorise objects according to properties such as shape, size or colour.
Position & Direction
- Children use everyday language to talk about position to compare objects and to solve problems.
- Children can describe their relative position such as ‘behind’ or ‘next to’.
- Children explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.
- Children begin to use mathematical names for ‘flat’ 2D shapes (circle, oval, triangle, square, rectangle, rhombus, pentagon) and mathematical terms to describe shapes (side/ edge, corner, curved, straight).
- Children select a particular named shape.
- They recognise, create and describe patterns.
- Children use familiar objects and common shapes to create and recreate patterns and build models.
- Children use everyday language related to time (days, months, times of day, seasons, o’clock) and can sequence events.
- Children begin to use everyday language related to money (coin, pence/p, 1p, 2p, 5p, total, value).
- Children use everyday language to talk about size and length and begin to solve problems.
- Children can order two or three items by length or height.
