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.
