Edinburgh nursery children use scales to develop maths skills
Date: 13 Oct 2017
Children at Bright Horizons Cramond Early Learning and Childcare centre in Edinburgh have been using scales to develop their maths skills.
The children have been busy weighing and measuring a variety of materials, whilst discussing how they weight differently and why certain materials weight more than others. The activity was part of Bright Horizons’ Growing Mathematicians enhancement.
“They were looking at the weight to gain an understanding of higher and lower numbers,” said Cant. “This sparked the children’s learning and interest allowing for a fantastic learning opportunity.”
The Growing Mathematicians enhancement aims to outline the importance of mathematics in a child’s everyday life.
