Maths activites and ideas provided by the Devon Maths Team (maths advisors)
These activities have been designed to support all adults working with children over the coming weeks and months, with the aim of engaging children in positive mathematical experiences where they are encouraged to think, notice and wonder. This is an opportunity for learners to experience the beauty and creativity of mathematics. Where children are able to work with other children, we would encourage working on the Maths in a collaborative way, exploiting all opportunities for sharing ideas and building on each other’s thinking. You will find there will be more than one way to engage with the activities and this is to be encouraged and embraced. Sharing different approaches will allow the learning to go even further.
