12 weeks of Maths planning for the Autumn Term in Reception. The plans are based on White Rose and Numberblocks approaches and are fully editable, featuring assessment points from Development Matters and continuous provision opportunities. We focus mainly on number recognition to 10 in the Autumn term, as well as comparing length and introducing 2D shapes. The planning features 60 separate Maths sessions, and as such can easily be continued into the Spring term for settings that prefer a different pace or who may choose to repeat sessions for further consolidation. Resources that I use alongside this planning are also available for purchase in my store. Spring Term planning is now available here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/white-rose-numberblocks-maths-planning-spring-term-eyfs-12196549
EYFS Observations - Teacher Tools Bundle
EYFSResourcesEYFSResources

EYFS Observations - Teacher Tools Bundle

3 Resources
Three invaluable resources to support teachers and practitioners taking observations in the Early Years. Bundle includes: Teacher training Powerpoint and handout pack - Examples of high quality observations in the Early Years. The presentation details what makes a good quality observation and how observations can reliably inform assessment and provision. Useful for staff training or INSET sessions, particularly for teachers new to EYFS or Early Years Practitioners that could benefit from extra guidance. Real examples of EYFS observations from Learning Journals are included with photographic evidence. These observations are then analysed - what makes them good observations? How could they be improved? Examples of evidence table - a ‘cheat sheet’ for practitioners that provides examples of activities for each of the 17 areas of learning within Development Matters. Useful to display on a classroom wall for easy referral for all adults looking to capture evidence for a specific area of learning. ‘Next Steps’ document - a bank of ‘Next Steps’ statements for EYFS pupils, based on the Early Learning Goals and age band statements from Development Matters. Useful for adding the next steps to observations, as well as for setting targets for parents’ evenings or reports. Designed to help move children on to their ‘next step’ across all 17 areas of learning, as part of teachers’ formative assessment. Also includes Exceeding statements for HA pupils.

EYFSResourcesEYFSResources

Number Posters to 10 (Numberblocks)

(0)
10 A4 posters for the numerals 1-10. Each poster features a Numberblock character, a representation on fingers, and the numeral. Please note these are not genuine Numberblock characters but a similar version that I created to support number sense.
Numicon Shape Matching Pictures
EYFSResourcesEYFSResources

Numicon Shape Matching Pictures

(0)
A selection of 5 images designed for actual size Numicon pieces. Children match Numicon pieces to the pictures (A4 size) or experiment further with numbers by choosing alternative combinations of filling in each picture. An optional recording sheet is also included within the download to encourage pupils to record which shapes they used and to add them together to find the total. These are great for differentiated learning - LA pupils can focus on matching shapes while HA pupils can extend to number bonds and addition. The students in my Reception class loved these sheets and would often choose to write down the numeral next to each shape that they used on the original picture sheet, and then count all holes to find the total, recording in whichever way they chose. There are lots of possibilities to explore and secure number sense.
