As explained at our Maths meeting, all the Shape, Space and Measure learning we do will be directly linked to the number of the week.
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.
