Early Years Foundation Stage

In Early Years the children are working towards achieving the 17 Early Learning Goals.


Two of the goals specifically relate to maths.


ELG 11 Numbers


Children can 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 can add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer. They can solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.

 

ELG 12 Shape, space and measures


Children can use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They can recognize, create and describe patterns. They can explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.
