EYFS Mathematics Making and Comparing Amounts Learning Activity

EYFS Mathematics Making and Comparing Amounts Learning Activity

This learning activity enables children to make and compare different amounts. The child is given an instruction, for example: ‘Find an amount that is greater than this one’ and the supporting adult places a card in one of the circles. The child then chooses a card to place in the other circle. The adult encourages the child to talk about the different quantities and prompt appropriate language.

3 and 4 year olds
(M-1) Develop fast recognition of up to 3 objects, without having to count them individually (‘subitising’).
(M-4) Know that the last number reached when counting a small set of objects tells you how many there are in total (‘cardinal principle’).

Children in Reception
(M-21) Count objects, actions and sounds.
(M-22) Subitise.
(M-25) Compare numbers.

Early Learning Goal
- 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 evens and odds, double facts and how quantities can be distributed equally.
