Maths Language (YR)

This is the mathematical vocabulary which we want your child to become familiar with this year. These words will be used regularly in the maths lessons and throughout the school day. It would be really helpful if, when you came across examples in real life where the words could be used, you brought them to the attention of your child and helped them to understand their meanings.

This is the mathematical vocabulary with which we want your child to become familiar this year. These words will be used regularly in the maths lessons. It would be really helpful if, when you came across examples in real life where the words could be used, you brought them to the attention of your child and helped them to understand their meanings.
