I am currently working my way through the LJs and updating the profiles (yes, assessment in nursery). Basically I have 2 children who I know can; count 3 and 6 objects reliably, say number names in order, recognise 1-9, count 10 objects and order numbers 1-10 but this has generally been done through adult led activities. Both children recognise difference between quatities but one can find one more/one less than 5 and also relates addition by combining 2 groups and relates subtraction to taking away - she is working out 3+3, 2+3 and other sums and uses her fingers to often solve this. The deputy head briefly suggested that I don't put them high up in the points but I'm really not sure what to do as I do believe they are secure in the areas stated above. I know there has been previous posts about nursery teachers awarding to high and I don't want to appear to be doing that.
