During my time in foundation stage I will have the chance to sort and group objects or materials and explain why I have done this.  I will be able to play with lots of resources indoors and outdoors and make comparisons in things like height, weight, size and texture. I will be able to use words like under, over, on top, between and in front to tell where things are and to put things in order when I play.  I will have opportunities to build and make things with shapes and talk about what these shapes look like.

I will be able to use numbers when I play to count and match things to each other.  I will begin to learn about adding things together or taking them away.  I will learn to recognise numbers all around me and use them confidently in play and games.  I will start to be able to put events in order and think about what happens next during the day.  I will get the chance to notice patterns in lots of situations and have a go at making patterns myself.  I will get to use all I know about maths to solve practical problems when doubling, halving and sharing.
