Our Maths lessons follow the Mastering number approach from the NCETM. The children initially learn the 'principles of counting' where we say each number in order (stable order), count each item once (one to one correspondence) and understand that the last number that we say is the number that we have (cardinal).
Children are exposed to numbers wherever we can. We use lots of rhymes and songs to learn the numbers.
Our favourites are '1, 2, 3, 4, 5, Once I caught a fish alive' or '5 Speckled frogs' and '5 Little Monkeys'.
