Roots for Learning – Numeracy Skills

We have a place for maths in a very special curriculum with sensory beginnings. Mathematics occurs in all of these contexts.

  • Social activities and routines
  • Personal care routine
  • Practical activities
  • Taking part in cultural activities
  • Taking part in games
  • Creative expression

All of the above require the teaching of these skills

  • Developing physical skills
  • Developing sequential skills and memory
  • Anticipating or predicting change
  • Communicating about and affecting changes we observe or need
  • Absorbing a valuable amount of knowledge
  • Making choices or taking decisions to solve problems
  • Working from practical towards more abstract thinking

This is the foundation of pre numerate learning. It has sensory beginnings.

Our children are encouraged to learn through play. They will gain practical knowledge which is mathematical in the widest sense.

  • Sense of size
  • Sense of quantity
  • Sense of difference
  • Sense of space – orientation, location and dimension
  • Sense of movement – direction and speed
  • Sense of rhythm and sequence
  • Sense of time – interval and duration
  • Senses of possession and loss
