Big, Big Maths: Working with Maths on a Large Scale

Discover meaningful opportunities for children to experience real mathematics on a large scale outdoors

Description

Through highly active, physical experiences children thoroughly embed their understanding of early mathematical concepts and learn to use mathematical vocabulary in purposeful and meaningful ways.

During this twilight we will explore the ways in which children use their muscles and minds together as they learn. When they lift, carry, transport, dig, balance and fill they are exploring many of their own ideas and developing their understanding of key concepts. By exploring a wide range of possibilities with large, open-ended materials outdoor play can provide many opportunities for children to experience real mathematics on a large scale. 

The session will outline the key experiences, resources and organisation which are needed to support and extend children’s early mathematical thinking and will provide valuable strategies for providing inspiring maths in a big way.


Benefits 

  • An opportunity to reflect on what mathematical thinking is and how we can best nurture and challenge mathematical concepts outdoors.
  • An understanding of the rich mathematical possibilities of outdoor play and the importance of physically challenging resources.
  • Practical ideas to take back to your setting
