How We Teach Understanding of the World

Children’s early years shape how they see themselves and others long into the future. At Muriel Green, we create a culture where they feel completely safe and accepted, whatever their background. Our practitioners help children understand, embrace and celebrate differences, so they become citizens of the world who want to change society for the better.


Our children gain a strong foundation in mathematical understanding through play, exploration, and practical activities. They learn to count using songs, number rhymes and the use of concrete objects. They learn to subitise through looking at number represented by dots (for example on dice) and begin to group numbers. Through everyday activities children learn to count objects, actions, and sounds and can compare quantities understanding the concept of more and less.

Maths Everywhere

We strive to make maths meaningful for our children and are mindful to keep activities practical and fun. It is very easy to jump straight to number when we think of maths but our staff are experts in building upon firm foundations, first understanding the importance of sorting, classifying, measuring and comparing. We use familiar resources and equipment to ensure that children experience real life mathematical problem solving.
