The children learnt how to count from 1-10 in the classroom, we used some of our toys to practice putting the numbers in the correct order and afterwards took learning outside and played maths games to help them remember their counting skills, ordering the numbers and number recognition. The first game we played the children learnt that we could count all sorts of things; outside we picked up leaves and sticks then counted them to match the number. The second game the children randomly picked a number in the basket and then had to find friends with the same number and stand together, the third game, was number police, the children had to hide and if the teacher found you, you had to count to 10. Lastly for number recognition the children had to slide down and say the number the teacher had in-front of them. The children enjoyed a fun and different way of learning.
