Children’s Mathematical Play
In Nursery, children are learning about shapes, spacial concepts and numbers everyday as they play. In the album below you will see a very wide range of children’s activities in which they are immersed in play and learning. It is very important that children have a rich range of sensory and whole body experiences with shapes, positions and quantities to build their understanding before they start to calculate or solve adult directed problems. They are also learning the language of maths when they play with other children or with adults who comment on what they are doing. Even tidying up is maths when children have to find and match objects to their photos on the shelves.
