As part of our ‘Great North Maths Hub’ learning walk Nursery made an ‘Estimation Station.’ The aim was for the children to have a good guess how many things were in each container and then check by using their counting strategies. They then had to find their number on the number track. The lesson was extremely successful and the children could be observed after the visitors had left, recreating the task independently and consolidating their learning.
Alas the learning did not end there! One of our girls loved the activity so much that she took the maths equipment home with her and taught her family how to ‘estimate.’ Well done Nursery! Super maths!
