Good for looking at

  • Emergent mathematical understanding
  • Maths is everywhere
  • Speech, language and communication
  • Effective practice


  • What cues can you see that show what the children are interested in? (Look out for non-verbal and body language as well as spoken language)
  • How the children are learning?
  • Which areas of development, engagement and characteristics of learning can you observe?
  • In what ways does the adult support the children’s learning?
