Early Milestone: FS1 & FS2


Key Skill: Add and Subtract

Know that a group of things changes in quantity when something is added or taken away

Separate a group of 3 or 4 objects in different ways, begin to recognise that the different total is still the same

Find the total number of items in 2 groups by counting all of them

Find one more or one less from a group of up to 5 objects, then 10 objects.

Begin to use the vocabularly involved in adding and subtracting in practical activities and discussion

Key Skill: Solve Problems

Show an interest in number problems

Show curiosity about numbers by offering comments or asking questions

Record, using marks that they can interpret and explain

Begin to identify own mathematical problems based on own interests and fascinations

Solve problems involving doubling, halving and sharing

Early Learning Goal

Children count reliably with numbers from 1 to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract 2 single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer. They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.

Shape, space and measure

Key Skill: Use measurements

Understand some talk about immediate past and future

Anticipate specific time-based events such as mealtimes or home time

Begin to use the language of size

Use positional language

Show an interest in shapes in the environment

Use everyday language related to time

begin to use everyday language related to money

Order and sequence familiar events

Measure short periods of time in simple ways

Can describe their relative position such as 'behind' or 'next to'

Order 2 or 3 items by length or height

Order 2 items by weight or capacity

Key Skill: Recognise, create and describe patterns

Notice simple shapes and patterns in pictures

Show an interest in shapes and space by playing with shapes or making arrangements with objects

Show awareness of similarities of shapes in the environment

Use shapes appropriately for tasks

Begin to use mathematical names for 'solid' 3D shapes and 'flat' "D shapes, and mathematical terms to describe shapes.

can select a particular named shapes

Key Skill: Describe objects and shapes

begin to categorise objects according to properties such as shape or size

Begin to talk about shapes of everyday objects

Show an interest in shape by sustained construction activity or by talking about shapes or arrangements

Begin to use mathematical names of 'solid' 3D and 'flat' 2D shapes, and mathematical terms to describe shapes

Can select a particular named shape.

Early Learning Goal

Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distanc4e, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday and shape and use mathematical language to describe them
