Mathematical Development
Throughout the Nursery day the children are constantly solving problems, such as “Where does this piece of the puzzle go?” or “How many bricks can I count?” At The Old School Henstead we encourage this important skill by planning activities which stretch the children to ask questions and more importantly we hope to instil within them the inquisitiveness to find out the answers. During our cookery sessions we use mathematical language and we weigh and measure ingredients. Reasoning and Numeracy are developed through daily activities which include counting games, number songs, rhymes and physical number play.
