Mathematical Development (MD)

• Numbers

• Shape, space and measures

This area of learning includes: counting, sorting, matching and seeking patterns, making connections, recognising

relationships and working with numbers, shapes, space and measures. Mathematical understanding will

be developed through stories, rhymes, songs, games and imaginative play so that children enjoy using and

experimenting with numbers.

 

How you can help:

Count everything you can - wheels on lorries, socks on the washing line, place settings…the list is endless.

Encourage your child to count out objects by saying one

number name for each object.

Ask them to count a quantity of objects from a larger group, e.g. when shopping ask, “can you put 8 apples in a

bag”.

Demonstrate and encourage comparative vocabulary – taller, heavier, greater, lighter. Encourage children to

become involved in applying mathematic ideas to solve problems, e.g. “If I need 4 apples to make one apple pie I

wonder how many I’ll need to make two apple pies”. Look for numerals in the environment such as on doors,

signs or the television remote, to name a few.
