The two books in the Numbers for Nippers series have been developed by maths resource writer John Thompson and new entrants teacher, Laurel Belworthy. Together they have come up with a great collection of activities for children which are supported by information pages for teachers.
The activities can be done individually, in co-operative groups, with a teacher aide or with parents at home. Co-operative work is recommended because children will have an opportunity to engage in ‘Maths Talk’ with these resources. The theme of the natural world has been incorporated into both books. Activity types range from cutting up and sorting or matching to board games, drawing, and writing.
Book A: Numbers
Book B: Shapes
