- They compare, sort and order two objects by direct observation and use words that describe temperature during everyday activities.
- They anticipate events related to elements of the day and begin to use simple time-related words.
- They recognise and name simple 2D shapes, and use 2D and 3D shapes and show an awareness of money in their play.

- They use 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p coins to ‘pay’ for items.
- They make a sensible estimate up to 10 and understand that this can be checked by counting.
- They use direct comparisons and simple terminology in terms of measure and temperature and understand that measurements must start at the same point.
- They use the concept of time in terms of daily events and demonstrate a sense of how long things take.
- They recognise simple 2D and 3D shapes, describe them in simple language and use them in their play.
- They recognise and repeat patterns of up to three visually and aurally.
- They sort and classify objects using one criterion and record collections using marks, numbers or pictures.
- They move in given directions.
- Children recite numbers in simple sequences to 100, including different starting points and compare and order numbers to 20.
- They count up to 20 objects, sometimes using small groups.
- They read and write numbers to 20. They understand and describe how to partition numbers below 20 into tens and units.
- They recall halves and doubles up to 10 and recognise and understand odd and even numbers up to 20.
- They can perform simple addition and subtraction using their preferred strategy and mentally recall ‘one more’ and ‘one less’ of a number within 20.
- They make sensible estimates of larger groups of objects, and use estimation and checking with calculations and measurements.
- They ‘pay’ for items up to 20p and find totals and give change from 10p.
- They use non-standard units when measuring and use descriptive words when describing temperature.
- They use the concept of time in daily and weekly activities and use standard units of time to read hours on a clock.
- They find halves in practical situations and recognise and name common regular 2D and 3D shapes and describe and experiment with how they fit together in their play.
- They copy, describe and extend patterns including shape and number.
- They can sort or match more than one criterion.
- They collect information by voting or sorting and represent the total in pictures, objects or lists and tables.
- They make whole and half turns.
- Children recite in simple sequences beyond 100, including different starting points and compare and order two-digit numbers.
- They count larger sets of objects reliably using grouping.
- They read and write numbers to 100 and understand and explain the position of the digit determines the value up to 100. They partition two-digit numbers and know the value of each digit.
- They recall doubles up to 20 and recognise and understand odd and even numbers up to 100.
- They can perform more difficult additions and subtractions using their preferred strategy and mentally recall ‘10 more’ or ‘20 more’ within 100.
- They ‘pay’ for items up to £1 and find totals and give change from multiples of 10p.
- They begin to understand the link between multiplication and division, and use 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables to solve problems.
- They use a variety of estimation and checking strategies that are appropriate to calculations and measurements.
- They use standard units to measure and show an awareness of different scales of units and compare daily temperatures using a thermometer.
- They use standard units of time to read hours and minutes on a clock.
- They find halves and quarters in practical situations.
