Falcons Primary School

Maths in Reception

Falcons Primary has a whole school mastery approach to maths. We start this approach in the Reception year with a two week focus on a number. As part of this we investigate different aspects of a number and different mathematical skills focussing on the four Cs:

  • counting;
  • comparison;
  • composition;
  • change.

This approach gives the children an in depth study of mathematical skills and in the years since we have taken this approach we have found that the children are more confident mathematicians in their Reception year and as they move up the school. We also continue to embed maths across the curriculum with lots of maths based continuous and enhanced provision in both the indoor and outdoor learning environment and lots of maths talk and stories.
