“Mini Maths Explorers highlighted the scope for mathematical learning through everyday resources and activities. For those ready to challenge, practical ideas were shared to elaborate and extend provision to consolidate learning. A useful auditing tool helps practitioners to assess current practice and to create an action plan for improvement. Settings in the process of self evaluation will find this incredibly useful. The links to the Mud Kitchen directive to support the creation and use of this brilliant open ended resource will support practitioners to think about capacity, problem solving size and shape during play in addition to creative opportunities.” – Rebecca Marsh, Manager, Portico Nursery Group
