Number, money and measure

E.NS.1.1
Estimation and rounding
• I am developing a sense of size and amount by observing, exploring, using and communicating with others about things in the world around me.
• Recognises the number of objects in a group, without counting (subitising) and uses this information to estimate the number of objects in other groups.
• Checks estimates by counting.
• Demonstrates skills of estimation in the contexts of number and measure using relevant vocabulary, including less than, longer than, more than and the same.

E.NS.1.2
Number and number processes
• I have explored numbers, understanding that they represent quantities, and I can use them to count, create sequences and describe order.
• I use practical materials and can 'count on and back' to help me understand addition and subtraction, recording my ideas and solutions in different ways.
• Explains that zero means there is none of a particular quantity and is represented by the numeral 0.
• Recalls the number sequence forwards within the range 0  30, from any given number.
• Recalls the number sequence backwards from 20.
• Identifies and recognises numbers from 0 to 20.
• Orders all numbers forwards and backwards within the range 0  20.
• Identifies the number before, the number after and missing numbers in a sequence within 20.
• Uses onetoone correspondence to count a given number of objects to 20.
• Identifies 'how many?' in regular dot patterns, for example, arrays, five frames, ten frames, dice and irregular dot patterns, without having to count (subitising).
• Groups items recognising that the appearance of the group has no effect on the overall total (conservation of number).
• Uses ordinal numbers in real life contexts, for example, 'I am third in the line'.
• Uses the language of before, after and inbetween.
• Counts on and back in ones to add and subtract.
• Doubles numbers to a total of 10 mentally.
• When counting objects, understands that the number name of the last object counted is the name given to the total number of objects in the group.
• Partitions quantities to 10 into two or more parts and recognises that this does not affect the total.
• Adds and subtracts mentally to 10.
• Uses appropriately the mathematical symbols +,  and =.
• Solves simple missing number problems.

E.NS.1.3
Fractions, decimal fractions and percentages
• I can share out a group of items by making smaller groups and can split a whole object into smaller parts.
• Splits a whole into smaller parts and explains that equal parts are the same size.
• Uses appropriate vocabulary to describe halves.
• Shares out a group of items equally into smaller groups.

E.NS.1.3
Money
• I am developing my awareness of how money is used and can recognise and use a range of coins.
• Identifies all coins to £2.
• Applies addition and subtraction skills and uses 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p coins to pay the exact value for items to 10p. 

E.775


E.NS.1.4
Time
• I am aware of how routines and events in my world link with times and seasons, and have explored ways to record and display these using clocks, calendars and other methods.
• Links daily routines and personal events to time sequences.
• Names the days of the week in sequence, knows the months of the year and talks about features of the four seasons in relevant contexts.
• Recognises, talks about and where appropriate, engages with everyday devices used to measure or display time, including clocks, calendars, sand timers and visual timetables.
• Reads analogue and digital o'clock times (12 hour only) and represents this on a digital display or clock face.
• Uses appropriate language when discussing time, including before, after, o'clock, hour hand and minute hand.

E.NS.1.5
Measurement
• I have experimented with everyday items as units of measure to investigate and compare sizes and amounts in my environment, sharing my findings with others.
• Shares relevant experiences in which measurements of lengths, heights, mass and capacities are used, for example, in baking.
• Describes common objects using appropriate measurement language, including tall, heavy and empty.
• Compares and describes lengths, heights, mass and capacities using everyday language, including longer, shorter, taller, heavier, lighter, more and less.
• Estimates, then measures, the length, height, mass and capacity of familiar objects using a range of appropriate nonstandard units.
