2. Every utterance is treated as though it had communicative intent. Adults take great pleasure in the fact that children are striving to communicate in spoken language. Even though adults regularly use mathematics in their everyday lives, very few are aware of the communicative potential of mathematics. It is not therefore surprising that they do not always identify and support it in children’s utterances. 3. Learning is informal. On entry to school, too often scant regard is paid to children’s informal and home-based learning of mathematics.

This is particularly sad when we realize that the emphasis on some of the more formal aspects of literacy and numeracy which has resulted from downward pressures has more to do with adults’ perception of what is meant by the documents than with what is actually written (Edgington et al. 1998). The early learning goals do not require children under 5 to be able to record number operations formally. Pressures to accelerate children into the use of conventional notations and symbol systems may, in the short term, result in apparently rapid progress in, for example, doing simple sums but will not lead to high later achievement.
