All children can be successful with mathematics, provided that they have opportunities to explore mathematical ideas in ways that make personal sense to them and opportunities to develop mathematical concepts and understanding.

Numbers – is about how children gradually know & use numbers & counting in play, & eventually recognise & use numbers reliably, to develop mathematical ideas& to solve problems, how children develop an awareness of the relationship between numbers & amounts & know that numbers can be combined to be added together & can be separated by taking away & that two or more amounts can be compared.

Shape, Space & Measures – is about how talking about shapes & quantities, & developing appropriate vocabulary, children use their knowledge to develop ideas & to solve mathematical problems.
