Reception Long Term Plan overview

Early Maths


Our Early Maths planning follows the recommendations from White Rose Maths to ensure that all learning is developed and embedded well over time towards children achieving their Early Learning Goal. 

Mathematics is taught explicitly in our Foundation Stage by class teachers but is also embedded into children's Continuous Provision so that children revisit and explore concepts repeatedly so they gain a deeper understanding of the elements outlined in the Early Years Framework.


Teaching and the design of provision also takes inspiration from Development Matters suggestions as well as being informed by Bold Beginnings which was commissioned in 2017 and informs best practise. 


Early Learning Goals :


Mathematics ELG: Number

Children at the expected level of development will: -

  • Have a deep understanding of number to 10, including the composition of each number; 14 –
  • Subitise (recognise quantities without counting) up to 5; -
  • Automatically recall (without reference to rhymes, counting or other aids) number bonds up to 5 (including subtraction facts) and some number bonds to 10, including double facts.


ELG: Numerical Patterns

 Children at the expected level of development will: -

  • Verbally count beyond 20, recognising the pattern of the counting system; -
  • Compare quantities up to 10 in different contexts, recognising when one quantity is greater than, less than or the same as the other quantity;
  • Explore and represent patterns within numbers up to 10, including
