Within nursery, we have maths input sessions everyday. During this half term, we will be comparing quantities. Following this, we will be learning of various ways to represent number! There are also numerous mathematical activities within the continuous provision in which children can access during learning time. 


Here are some fun maths activities that you can try at home-


Counting using natural resources.

Explore the fantastic outdoors and collect different natural items along the way. This is a great, free, open ended activity to enhance early maths. You can encourage counting, number recognition, ordering the size of different items and also grouping of objects. 



Number sensory tray

Using jelly, tweezers and plastic number figures create your very own sensory tray! This is an engaging activity that children will love as they are able to explore texture and also develop their number recognition. 


Exploring shape!

The outdoors provides numerous opportunities to explore different shapes and is completely free! You could gather different resources on a nature walk and discover which shapes you can make. You could use; leaves, flowers, twigs or pebbles.
