Eyfsp Calculating Scale Points 3 & 7


Guest
 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

just a quick one please! On the EYFSP calculating strand the scale points 3 and 7 state that the children should know one more OR one less than a number up to 5, then up to 10. Do you take this as the children only need to know one of these to achieve the scale point - do they only need to know how to find one more or one less! this is how i take it but another member of staff disagrees and believes that is should be both.

 

Thanks x xx

WE CHECK AND MAKE SURE CHILDREN ARE CONFIDENT IN BOTH .lOTS OF THE CHILDREN DO 1 MORE BUT 1 LESS IS A LOT HARDER.

We dont give the point unless they can do both confidently.

The Midlands AAIA have a handbook on scale points and their advice is

 

C 3

Finds one more or one less from a group of up to five objects.

’Or’ implies an alternative and child is more likely to find one more than one

less.

 

C 7

Finds one more or one less than a number from 1 to 10.

Emphasis should be on practical contexts.

Child finds one more or less and can talk about ‘more’ or ‘less’ (see

handbook elaboration – importance of talk makes this a very challenging

SP).
