I’m sure we can all agree how challenging it can be to ask fifteen 5-year-olds to concentrate on counting may be.

There are several aspects of mathematics which young people will begin learning up to the age of 5 years. A key skill that should be mastered is counting, and this can be achieved through a variety of Early Years maths activities.

Children should be able to count from 1 to 20 confidently, as well as counting upwards and downwards and knowing which numbers are higher or lower than others.

There are a number of facilities available to playgrounds to make learning an exciting experience. Hopscotch and numbered floor panels are provided in , with these facilities it will help to develop children’s counting skills in a memorable way.

As a teacher, you can create your own math games or take advantage of its original purpose. The great thing about this is that you can also incorporate other skills such as emotional play.

Kids can guess which numbers are correct by physically jumping onto them. They can exclude incorrect numbers by standing on them to make an order. Learning this vital lesson has made mathematics more enjoyable for everyone involved.
