1. Maths in Reception Chawson First School October 2012

2. Today • Share with you how maths is taught in Year R • Chance to explore maths activities with your child • Be introduced to Maths Story Sacks

3. Now referred to as a Specific Area - Mathematics • Numbers – which includes calculating • Shape, space and measure

4. Early Learning Goal – Number 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, halving and sharing. Early Learning Goal - 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 problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.

5. Number Count to ten and beyond Recognises numbers – including when they are out of sequence Orders numbers – including when gaps are present e.g. 4, 7, 9 are in order even though some of the ‘song’ is missing. Count in different steps Count 10 or more objects – with one to one correspondence.

6. Audience participation time! 1,2 3,4,5 Once I caught a fish alive, 6,7,8,9,10, then I let it go again. Why did you let it go? Because it bit my finger so! Which finger did it bite? This little finger on my right!

7. 10 fat sausages sizzling in a pan One went POP and the other went BANG 8 fat sausages etc 6 4 2 0 fat sausages … none went POP and none went BANG

8. Calculating Joins in with number rhymes and songs Compares quantities in sets Finds one more or less from a group of objects Understands addition as joining groups Understands subtraction as taking away Solving problems such as sharing objects out or counting in different steps e.g. 6 people have how many hands altogether?

9. Please put yourself into the mind of 4/5 year old for this activity! Please take yourself a small pile of counters (less than 10). Work in pairs or groups to split your pile into 2 How many counters do you have in each pile. Put them together again. Can you split the pile a different way? How many different ways have you found?

10. Shape, space and measures Talks about, recognises and creates patterns Sorts objects into groups talking about choices. Use everyday words to describe position Learn terms 2D and 3D shape. Name and talk about common shapes – number of sides, curved straight. Size Recognise these shapes around them in different orientations. A square on its side might be called a diamond by children, but is still a square. Mathematical words to compare – greater, smaller, heavier, lighter, taller, shorter, longer, shorter (length, height, weight, and time)

11. Play time again! Using your sorting objects on the table can you sort them into different groups. Colour and size? Can you make a sequence with 2 colours? 3 colours? Size changes as well? Happy sorting...

12. Numicon - • We use a great resource called Numicon • Use it for number recognition. The children develop a mental image to go with the number. • Use it for number bonds. • Help the children see subtraction • Used it for sequences. • Lots of uses – even pictures!

13. “Adults who help children to play are adults who help children to learn.” What mathematical activities could you get out of playing with this lego?

14. How can you help at home? Mealtimes and cooking On a journey Walking to and from school Bedtime Shopping Encouraging use of maths vocabulary – modelled by yourself in day to day quality discussions in the above activities. Some ideas of things you can do at home – sheet will come home tonight in child’s book bag along with the letter for maths story sacks ... Which brings us on to

15. Maths Story Sacks Arose as part of feedback from families a couple of years ago. Wanted some maths support to go along with the reading and phonics. These were generously funded by CFSA – this is the second year of using them but we have just had to replace missing, books, games, and other parts. Please take care of the resources particularly checking parts. Each bag has – A book Sheet explaining activity and giving vocabulary Activity – game or equipment with instructions.

16. Next ... We are going to go into the classrooms and in each room will be a range of maths activities for you to take part in with your child. Number Shape Sorting Sequences Comparing things Etc. Any questions?
