Effective Practice:
1. Sorting and justifying decisions
Here are some pebbles and shells. Put all the shells in
this box. Tell me one way in which these two buttons
are the same. Now tell me one way in which they are
different. Tell me how you have sorted the objects.
Tell me why you sorted the objects like that.
Record as appropriate.VAK X curric. PSED, CLL,
CD
2. Measures
I am giving each of you six paper strips. Find two
strips in your set which are the same length. Show
them to me. Now find a strip in your set which is
longer than this one. How many cubes will balance
the parcel on the scales? Which tree in the picture is
the tallest? Which is the shortest? Record as
appropriate. VAK X curric. PSED, CLL
3. Sequencing time
At what time of the year do the leaves fall off the
trees? These cards tell a story of how some children
built a snowman. Put the cards in order.
What is your bedtime? Record as appropriate.VAK
X curric. PSED, CLL, KUW
4. O’clock times
The children will make their own clocks. Children
will be asked to order numbers 1-12 and position
them correctly on the clock face. Children will attach
hands using a paper fastener. Children will use their
clocks to show me o’clock and half past times. The
tempered ladybird’ next week. Record as
appropriate. VAK X curric. PSED, CLL, PD
Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy
Stories and rhymes
Effective Practice:
Look, listen and note
Opportunities to explore and apply
The children will have lots of
opportunity to engage in number
song, rhymes, problems and other
activities. A variety of resources will
be on hand so that children can
choose to count, count sets of
objects, count in tens, fives and twos,
recognise numerals 10 and beyond,
match numbers to dots, words and
sets.
Resources include number mats and
shapes, jigsaw, puzzles, games,
computer software, number lines,
number fans, flashcards, pegs,
boards, 2D and 3D shapes. Some
activities will be set up for the
children to access whilst others are
available on the shelf for children to
select and use.
Garden centre role play
The children will engage in role play
within a Garden Centre. This will
give the children the opportunity to
pay and give change, using a range
of mathematical vocabulary. VAK

order two or three items by length or
height.

Effective Practice:
1. Sorting and counting
Look at this set of coloured cubes. Count all the red
cubes for me. Now draw the red cubes that you
have counted. Sort the cubes for me. Put all the
cubes that are the same colour together. How many
green cubes are there? Pick up that number from
this set of number cards. Put it with the green
cubes. How many blue cubes are there? Pick up that
number from the set of number cards. Put it with
the blue cubes. Record as appropriate. VAK X
curric. CLL, PSED
2. Time
The children will use the clocks they made last
week to show and tell o’clock times. The children
will first be introduced to the clock, the clock face,
short and long hands etc.
More able children will be taught how to read half
past times. Record as appropriate. The clocks will
this week. VAK X curric. CLL, PSED, KUW
3. Capacity
The terms ‘full’ ‘half full’ and ‘empty’ will be
reinforced with the children. Is this full? What does
empty mean? Show the children three different
shaped and sized containers. Which of the
containers do you think will hold the most water?
Why? How can we find out? Carry out the
investigation and record as appropriate. VAK X

Effective Practice:
1. 2D flat shapes
Look at this set of flat shapes. Put all the circles
inside this hoop. Put the triangles on a pile. Move all
thee squares to one side. The children will spend
some time learning the names of flat 2D shapes.

so that children can choose to count,
count sets of objects, count in fives
and twos, recognise numerals 10 and
beyond, match numbers to dots, words
and sets.
Pick up a shape with two faces that are triangles; a
shape with six faces that are all squares; a shape with
two faces that are circles; a shape with three faces
that are rectangles. Children will spend some time
learning the names of solid 3D shapes. Record as
appropriate. VAK X curric. PSED
Resources include number mats and
shapes, jigsaw, puzzles, games,
computer software, number lines,
number fans, flashcards, pegs, boards,
2D and 3D shapes. Some activities
will be set up for the children to
access whilst others are available on
the shelf for children to select and use.
3. Positional language
The children will be given opportunity to
understand and use positional language. Put your
animal in the middle of the table. Now put the pig
behind the sheep. Put the cow in front of the horse.
Follow my instructions to get through this obstacle
course. Go over the mat, through the tunnel, climb
to the top of the bars. Are the felt pens on top of,
under or next to the books? Record as appropriate.
VAK X curric. PSED, KUW, PD, CLL
Look, listen and note whether children use
language such as ‘circle’ or ‘bigger’ to
describe the shape and size of solids and
flat shapes.
