Brington Church of England

Primary School

As we learn in the bible... Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
(Thessalonians 5:11)


Below are the expected outcomes for children at the end of their reception year for Communication and language. These are referred to as ELG (Early Learning Goals) 



ELG: Number

Children at the expected level of development will:

• Have a deep understanding of numbers to 10, including the composition of each number.

• Subitise (recognise quantities without counting) up to 5.

• Automatically recall (without reference to rhymes, counting or other aids) number bonds up to 5 (including subtraction facts) and some number bonds to 10, including double facts.


ELG: Numerical Patterns

Children at the expected level of development will:

• Verbally count beyond 20, recognising the pattern of the counting system.

• Compare quantities up to 10 in different contexts, recognising when one quantity is greater than, less than or the same as the other quantity.

• Explore and represent patterns within numbers up to 10, including evens and odds, double facts and how quantities can be distributed equally
