The seven areas of learning – Mathematics:

Mathematics is one of the four specific areas within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
Children are provided with opportunities to develop and improve counting skills, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems and to describe shapes, space and measures.

The key areas within Mathematics are: Numbers and Shape Space and Measure.

Early learning Goal

  • Numbers – Children count reliably with numbers from one to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single- digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer. They solve problems, including doubling, having and sharing.
  • Shape, Space and Measure – Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problem. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.
