Shape, Space and Measure
Encourage children to explore and talk about the characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.
Children will use language through play to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money.
Children are supported to recognise, create and descibe patterns.

Over the next half term we will be looking at counting in 2's, 5's and 10's, repeating patterns and simple addition and subtraction.
