Begin your maths mastery journey in Reception with this Pattern unit of work for Autumn 1. Pattern is at the heart of mathematics and the comprehensive unit for EYFS will encourage your pupils to notice, explore and generalise patterns in a fun and age-appropriate way. The unit includes a range of activities, either for continuous provision or for a specifically maths-focused number time, as well as maths inputs and small group work. Due to the open-ended, inclusive nature of the planning, many activities will also be suitable or easy to adapt for preschool children. Click HERE to save 20% with the entire 12 week Autumn term bundle, which includes Pattern, Numbers 0-10, Sorting and Comparing, Measures and Shapes. If you are following the Early Maths Mastery long term plan, this is Unit 1 and falls in Week 1 of the autumn term. Inputs and activities are carried out in mixed-ability groups so that all children are exposed to the same rich language and ideas. There is a great deal of variation, scaffolding and over-learning to enable all children to “keep up”. Lots of opportunities for challenge are presented. Some of the extensions are beyond the scope of many pupils starting school or in preschool, however, they are included to enable you and your staff to cater for gifted pupils and also understand how to extend pupils as they move through the learning journey. This resource includes: A comprehensive planning document A suggested long-term maths mastery plan for Reception covering ELG 11 and ELG 12 Key ideas and common misconceptions A focus activity for the unit of work A range of independent activities and notes on progression Question prompts for adults working with the children ‘Keep up’ support ideas Greater depth challenge ideas and suggested extensions A resources file for printing to support the unit’s activities. Hopefully this resource will have more than you need to give your pupils a rich and solid understanding of pattern. Have fun! Interested in more Early Maths Mastery planning?

This hands-on unit of work will have your Early Years children sorting and comparing like masters in no time! This unit has been placed in the Autumn term for Reception as sorting should be taught early on. The activity ideas can be used or easily adapted for pre-school children as well. Sorting and comparing helps children to look at relationships and attributes, as well as how rules apply to sets. Further down the line, children who can sort confidently have one of the building blocks for algebraic thinking securely in place.

If you are following the Early Maths Mastery long term plan, this is Unit 3 and falls in week 9 of the Autumn term. The planning focuses on the 40-60 months EYFS framework statement of using the language of ‘more’ and ‘fewer’ to compare sets. This understanding of bigger and smaller numbers will lay the foundations for the mental number line that children will develop as they progress as mathematicians. Included in this download are: A detailed planning document A suggested long-term maths mastery plan A printed resources file to support the planning Key ideas and common misconceptions A focus activity A range of independent activities and notes on progression Key questions for adults working with children ‘Keep up’ support ideas Greater depth challenges Prompt cards detailing key questions and extensions for each activity A PowerPoint to introduce reasoning in the context of comparing numbers If you’re interested in more maths mastery resources, try: Unit 1: Pattern Unit 2: Numbers 0 - 10 Unit 4: Measures Unit 5: Shapes Subitising game - Little Red Riding Hood (free resource) Follow Early Maths Mastery on TES to be notified of further planning and resources for teaching maths mastery.
This comprehensive Early Years maths mastery planning will help your pupils develop a solid understanding of the concepts that underpin addition and subtraction. Planning is provided for the Spring term of Reception for 3 weeks, including daily inputs, adult-led focus activities each week and wide range of engaging, independent activities that allow children to make choices with their own learning. Throughout the unit, children learn that addition is the putting together of sets or the joining of more items to a set and that subtraction is the reduction of a set (all in child-friendly terms of course!) Using story-telling and experimental play, they learn that numbers can be changed and also secure their understanding of the word ‘equal’. They will build on previous subitising work and take their first steps as conceptual subitisers - something that makes them feel very clever!

A powerpoint I have created for the first 15 minutes in the morning when the children are coming into school. It is a revision of the White Rose Maths Hub’s small steps for year 3 for the first block of place value (intending on making slides for the rest of the blocks soon but trying to find a quick way for my children to recap what we’ve learnt through the year). Each slide has differentiated questions similar to those on the Small Steps document and answers on the next slide for children to self mark.
