Netherthong Pre-School Mathematics

What We Do

The Mathematics area guides children to develop skills with numbers and calculations. Also, with describing shapes, spaces, and measures.

Mathematics area includes:

  • Presenting with opportunities to improve skills in using numbers, counting, and understanding.
  • Calculating single addition and subtraction puzzles.
  • Defining spaces, shapes, and measures

We support mathematical development with lots of opportunities to count and subitise numbers/quantities. As part of registration each day the children count themselves and the number of children on the number line.

Some ideas of activities you can do at home to support your child's development in this area include

  • Pairing socks
  • Play board games with dice and counters
  • Play bigger and smaller games. Describe the 3 Billy Goats Gruff or using Goldilocks
  • Let them measure ingredients to cook or help make dinner
  • Play sorting coins or money games like Shops or Monopoly

The curriculum is ambitious and challenging for children. Staff know the children well and have a good grasp of how best to support them and build on their knowledge and skills.
