## Maths Expectations

Maths Towards the Expected Standard children should:

• Recognise numbers 1 to 10.
• Match numerals and quantities to 10.
• Count objects beyond 10.
• Find 1 more and 1 less to 10.
• Add by combining 2 groups of objects.
• Start to represent numbers.
• Begin to name 2D and 3D shapes.
• Order 2 to 3 objects by length, height, weight and capacity.
• Use positional language.
• Use everyday language related to time and money.

Maths At the Expected Standard children should:

• Count reliably with numbers from one to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number.
• Use quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer.
• Solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.
• Use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems.
• Recognise, create and describe patterns.
• Explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.

Maths Above the Expected Standard children should:

• Meet the previous standards plus:
• Estimates a number of objects and check quantities by counting up to 20.
• Solves practical problems that involve combining groups of 2, 5 or 10, or sharing into equal groups.
• Estimates, measures, weighs and compares and orders objects.
• Talk about properties, position and time.
