The Learning for Life Proud to be part of The Learning for Life


For our nursery pupils, we have mapped out a skills progression for early mathematics. The aim of our overview is to ensure pupils acquire the core mathematical knowledge that will allow them to start to experience success, and therefore begin to associate maths with enjoyment and motivation.

Books and songs play a key role in our delivery of maths offer. To ensure our mapping is focused for early years, we have used The Learning Trajectories to map out specific maths skills. The Learning Trajectories ensures that we have taken into account developmental progression in learning and, although we these mapped out, we also take a personalised approach and link maths to children's interests and needs.
