Numeracy. I can count forwards from 1-10.


“That’s ten.”

“What number do you think is missing? “Eh, 1,2, it’s 3. 3 is missing.” “Don’t look, I’ll hide a number.” “What’s missing?”


“I’m balancing. 1,2,3.”

“What number do you think this is?” “I can’t see.” “Guess.” “Is it 3?” “No, it’s 10.”

Some of the children were out in the garden exploring the numbered stepping stones. Initially the children were using the stones to balance and counting to see how many. The children were able to use mathematical language as a result and were discussing what they could count to and identifying the numbers. As the play and learning progressed, the children became intrigued when they noticed that one of the numbers was missing. This led to playing “Hide the Number” game, which enabled the childrenĀ to learn about numbers before and after and problem-solve to find the missing number.

I wonder what game the children will be able to create next.
