5. Mathematics (M)

Mathematics (M) area of learning focusses on simple concepts that are foundational to higher maths topics in KS1 and up. In EYFS children focus on the maths areas of:

  • Number
  • Numerical Patterns

Learning maths can help with life skills such as spatial awareness, shapes and measurement, and problem-solving.

Maths also serves for other uses like handling and managing money, telling the time, so they’re not late for any commitments they have in place, or working out distance and time together, so that they can travel.
