FREE Early Maths Mastery planning sample - numbers 0 - 5

One week of Early Maths Mastery planning for early years for you to try for free! This week’s worth of Reception planning plus accompanying printed resources file and PowerPoints are taken from week 3 of the Numbers 0 - 10 unit of work aimed primarily at Reception aged children but easily adaptable for younger children in EYFS.

The planning begins with an overview of the week’s learning including:

  • EYFSP references
  • key ideas
  • misconceptions and common errors
  • keep up support
  • going deeper ideas for promoting greater depth
  • planning for the focus task that will repeat throughout the week with a different group of children each day

The next section provides a short, progressive and interleaved whole class input for each day of the week.

Finally, a range of activities related to the learning focus are provided, along with ideas for extending the activity as the week progresses or for more able children. Suggested questions are provided on the right of each activity to help adults facilitate deeper understanding and probe for misconceptions.

All printed resources referenced in the planning can be found in the resources file included with this download. Two subitising powerpoints are also included and referenced in the planning.

All Early Maths Mastery planning follows this planning format so you can be assured that the same high quality planning, support information and range of activities will be included with any unit of work that you download.
