Mathematics involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers and calculating simple addition and subtraction problems. Children learn to describe and use shapes, space and measures whilst developing their early problem solving skills.
Children enjoy exploring mathematics through play, developing language skills at the same time. Teachers set up both adult-led activities and opportunities for the children to initiate their own learning and identify their own mathematical problems.
