In Reception we will be focusing on developing our number sense. We will be looking in depth at each number, particularly what they look like and how they can be made. How many different ways can we make the numbers 0-10? How can we represent and show each number? 



Autumn Term

We concentrate on numbers 0-5.  We look at using the language of more and fewer and start to think about 1 more and 1 less. We have loved meeting the Numberblocks and are becoming superstars at representing a number in different ways:

  • Using our fingers
  • A tally
  • Objects
  • Part-Part Wholes
  • And more!


We are also exploring how these numbers can be made using other numbers, such as 4 being made up of 2 and 2! Numicon has helped us to find the different ways before we've had a go at turning these into number sentences.


We look at 2D and 3D shape and their properties as well as finding out about different measures


Spring Term

We concentrate on numbers up to 10 and we use a range of different resources including numicon, tens frames and part, part, wholes to think about different ways we can make 10. We also think at addition and subtraction.


We look at estimation, capacity and 2D/3D shape.


Summer Term


We look at numbers beyond 10 and we think about counting on and back to add and subtract. We also think about sharing, halving and doubling as well as problem solving.


We look at mapping, distance and spatial language.
