Maths in EYFS and Key Stage One


Foundation stage:


This year the EYFS will be using Power Maths to support the teaching and learning of Mastery Maths. 

Children will be assessed in the following areas:


Numerical Patterns


Number ELG

Children at the expected level of development will:

Have a deep understanding of number to 10, including the composition of each number;

Subitise (recognise quantities without counting) up to 5;

Automatically recall (without reference to rhymes, counting or other aids) number bonds up to 5 (including subtraction facts) and some number bonds to 10, including double facts.


Numerical Patterns ELG

Children at the expected level of development will:

Verbally count beyond 20, recognising the pattern of the counting system;

Compare quantities up to 10 in different contexts, recognising when one quantity is greater than, less than or the same as the other quantity;

Explore and represent patterns within numbers up to 10, including evens and odds, double facts and how quantities can be distributed equally.


Overview of what is taught in Reception


Key stage One


Our pupils will learn to:


  • Develop the appropriate mathematical language associated with number, shape and position
  • Use and apply mathematics in practical tasks and in real life problems
  • Understand and use the four operations of number in relevant contexts
  • Understand relationships between numbers and learn basic number facts
  • Understand place value in our counting system
  • Use their mathematical skills in simple problem solving
  • Collect, interpret and represent data
  • Develop mental methods of calculation
  • Recognise, describe and represent shapes and patterns in terms of their properties
  • Measure quantities including length, area, volume/capacity and angle
