In Reception, we use White Rose Maths and other resources to support maths mastery and the children's early maths skills.
The key activities and skills we have worked on in HT1 are:
- Counting Songs - The nursery rhymes we focused on are 1,2,3,4,5 Once I Caught a Fish Alive and 5 Little Speckled Frogs.
BBC Counting Songs
- Showing finger numbers to 3
- Subitising 1, 2 and 3 objects - being able to say how many objects there are without counting. We often use subitising spots (see below) and ask the children, 'What do you see?' and 'How do you see it?'
