Numeracy & Mathematics
Measuring Bee Bot In Nursery cover numeracy and maths in many and varied situations.. In measure we use the vocabulary of big, wide, long, short, tall etc It is not just about rulers and tape measures. we use arbitrary measurements e.g hands.cubes ,feet. How wide is the box ? How many hands high is the house etc. What would be a good thing to use to measure the car? Beebot –in using the Beebots we introduce the children to directional language-forward , backwards,left, right and turn Shapes –examine the different properties ,flat ,curved 2D/3D squares, cubes Does that shape fit into that hole? Puzzles are used to discuss whether shapes will fit together. Comparing- smaller, bigger, more. less Sort by colour, shape , size, type Puzzles Shape Comparing

Numeracy & Mathematics
Number line Identifying Number Identify the number- recognition of the digits- point to the 6, show me the number correspondence e.g. 2 is 2 however it is arranged Counting – a part of nursery life . Forwards, e.g in Nursery rhymes Backwards in counting down. When we line up –how many children? How many boys/ girls? Are there more boys than girls? How many do we have if someone went away? Use of thumbs to make choices. How many children want a …. Which is more? Which number is bigger/smaller? Number lines are used to explore sequencing, whish number comes next, what is the missing number? Computer games are used to reinforce the processes. Counting Computer number games

Numeracy & Mathematics Focus
Numeracy group time Numbers all around us in and out of doors and exploring number sequences and quantities Through daily routines e.g. snack, line up Exploring time and seasons Under Curriculum for Excellence, Nursery is now part of Early Level with Primary 1. We follow the Heinemann Active Maths. Programme Resources to tie in with school. We liaise with P1 to ensure the coverage of the Outcomes for Early Level. Numeracy group time takes place once a week the same adult delivers it to each group to ensure ths children have a parity of experience. Numbers are all around us, registrations on bikes, door numbers, bus numbers, fire hydrants. When we line up –how many children? How many boys/ girls? Are there more boys than girls? How many do we have if someone went away? Use of thumbs to make choices. How many children want a …. Which is more? Which number is bigger/smaller? Line up who is in front / behind? Times of day ,morning, afternoon,Assembly time ,story time. The use of a visual timetable to order the day. Days of the week,birthdays, seasons, Baking-how many cupfuls , how many spoonfuls. Chairs set out for snack. How many can sit here?

Number is fun! Numbers all around – be a number spotter
Writing numbers Using numbers Money, money, money Don’t forget zero Helpful fingers Help us. Make number learning fun. Numbers are everywhere. Mrs Palmers story. Birthday cards. Buses, door numbers car registrations Form correctly. Write them in sand , use a brush to write them with water on the tarmac. Draw a number on my back. Set the table. Count how many seats are needed? How many apples do we need to buy? Involve the children to use money, plays shops , discuss change. Use real money recognise that two coins can equal one -Allan’s story Zero is a number too. (use of fingers to show nothing) Count in games from zero Fingers are fab. Encourage children to use them.

Children sharing their learning and experiences
PLPs are about the children and we want them to have ownership of them. The PLPs are available in the Nursery and children will often take them out to share their learning with staff or visitors. Each session we plan times where parents are invited to come to the school and share their PLPs with parents/carers PLP Sessions for parents and children
