Early Years Becoming a Mathematician in EYFS

 

Our main aims at Kellington Primary are to encourage children to enjoy maths, to help children to feel secure enough to have a go at problem solving and, most importantly, help them to see how this learning is applied to real life situations. If children are to become mathematicians they must see the relevance of their learning and be able to use it in real life contexts.  Considerable emphasis is placed on instant recall and mental calculation, using jottings to help support thinking. As children progress through the school and are taught more formal written methods, they are still encouraged to think first about the mental strategies they could use.

We use the National Curriculum (2014) as the basis of all teaching and learning throughout KS1 & 2, emphasising the curriculum aims of problem solving, reasoning and fluency. Mathematics is taught daily – all lessons start with a focus on mental strategies. In addition children rehearse the instant recall of facts (SMIRFs) at least three times per week. In Nursery and Reception, we use the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (2014).
