Foundation Phase

More To Maths

By using the familiar LEGO® brick coupled with real life understanding, your pupils will feel encouraged and motivated to think, write and speak freely about maths.  Through the activities, that are defined by the latest National Curriculum standards, pupils help the two characters Max and Mia to solve problems within four real life themes, and the collaborative experience that there is more to maths than facts.

Key learning values:

By connecting pupil enjoyment with success, MoreToMaths builds a positive attitude and establishes confidence in understanding how to solve mathematical problems.

This familiar and hands-on tool will give your students the confidence they need to overcome difficulties, persevere through challenges and establish enthusiasm towards the subject of maths.

The easy to use activities guide pupils to collaboratively read, write, identify and discuss how to solve maths problems.

Sorting and Sharing

With support, save work using an appropriate file name e.g. child’s name and simple title

Use an icon to open a saved file.

Data and Computational Thinking

Problem solving and Modelling

Control digital devices by giving them instructions.

Explain to others how a designed solution works e.g.  explain a design for a simple playground game and test, correcting any issues that arise.

Predict the behaviour of simple sequences of instructions

Create a simple solution that tests an idea e.g. test a solution to a simple problem and predict what would happen if it went wrong such as the sequence of waking up to go to school.

Data and Information Literacy

Gather data using objects.

Collect and organise data into groups e.g. gather data by voting or sorting and represent in pictures, objects or drawings.

Record data collected in a variety of suitable formats e.g. lists, tables, block graphs and pictograms.
