Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

Mathematics (M)

  •  Numbers (N):
    • 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 two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer.
    • they solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.
  • Shape, space and measures (SSM):
    • children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems.
    • they recognise, create and describe patterns.
    • they explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them. 

​All children, in both Nursery and Reception classes, engage in daily counting sessions. Focused adult-led Maths sessions take place daily and skills and knowledge are applied within continuous provision activities. Children's problem solving skills are developed through practical, real life scenarios throughout their topics and themes.
