It's been snowing - a lot! My outdoor space is pretty sloshy at the moment, so we haven't been doing much maths outside. The children have been playing outside of course. Indoors we have a toy shop and I've been trying to encourage the children to use money and prices. Though mainly they just like hiding under the table! We did a problem solving activity using compare bears 2 blue and 3 yellow lined up with a space in between, bears can only move 1 space at a time, they can jump forwards and back. The children have to work out how to move the bears to different ends. They did it with their problem partners and loved it. I was thinking I could do this outside, by using hula hoops or a grid or even just 6 paving slabs!
