summerfields washing line

Children at Bright Horizons Summerfields Day Nursery and Preschool in Wilmslow were have been enhancing their matching skills with the use of a washing line.

The children set up a washing line in the skills area at the nursery and used it to match socks and peg them onto the line, using the pincer grasp.

“The children are fantastic at finding the correct socks and have been making it into a game to see who can match the most socks the quickest,” said Kate Smithers, nursery manager. “This activity supports our Growing Mathematicians programme.”

Bright Horizons’ Growing Mathematicians programme emphasises the importance of maths in everyday life.
