My experiences teaching maths mastery with children taking their first steps in maths have been so powerful, creative and fun that I wanted to share them. I hope you enjoy the resources and teaching early maths mastery as much as I do!

This practical and comprehensive EYFS unit of work for the autumn term focuses on the use of everyday language to talk about size, weight and capacity to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems.

Updated for the September 2021 EYFS Statutory Framework and revised Development Matters (non-statutory) curriculum guidance.

Through hands-on, exploratory play, Early Years children are given rich opportunities to help them recognise the attributes of measure and spatial reasoning. A wide range of activities help them move their language on from ‘bigger’ and ‘smaller’ to more specific vocabulary, e.g. taller, wider, lighter, etc. Opportunities are planned to develop their understanding of measure from direct comparison, to indirect comparison and then beginning to understand the use of units to compare items.
