Mini Maths

In Maths, this week, we will be looking at number stories and number problems, playing with toys and equipment and including number/ counting in our play. For example, we could

  • count play-people toys and then share them between 2 or 3 children  so that everyone has the same amount.
  • count toy animals saying who has more/ less
  • solve the problem of how many more mini crackers do we need if everyone is to have 4 each.
  • play a story with toys at the play park, counting when some play-people go home (simple subtraction).
  • play a story with toys, counting when play-people toys return (putting 2 groups together is simple addition).
The number songs below will help children to remember number order and provide visual images for counting:
