Reception Maths (EYFS)

Maths in the Foundation Stage

In Reception, the children follow the Power Maths scheme that links to the Early Learning Goals. This scheme is allows for clear progression, challenge and mastery to support children as they make the transition in to KS1 and the National Curriculum. 


Support maths in Nursery and Reception by counting with your child and drawing/showing them the numbers 1-10. Count whenever you can so that your child becomes familiar with the number names, sounds and order. This is a fun and engaging way to develop number understanding and it really will make a difference to your child's learning.

It couldn't be easier to count steps for example when you're walking to school or out in the garden so count steps, hops and jumps- it's all beneficial! As a challenge, try counting backwards or starting from a different number to zero (0).
