Numeracy Garden

A huge thank you to Sara-Jane Macaskill at Knockbreck Primary for these inspiring photos of the Numeracy Garden they have developed:

Knockbreck have developed the Numeracy Garden as a space for Primary 1s and Primary 2s to develop and consolidate counting skills, and knowledge of numerals, patterns and word sequences. The Primary 7s also use this space at Buddy Time to spend time with their P1 buddies, and have been impressing everyone with their questioning skills in numeracy!

What a fantastic way to develop numeracy skills in a fun and meaningful context, as well as promoting numeracy as something positive and fun! I am already planning my visit to see the garden in action – thank you again Sara for these inspirational pictures.

    Brilliant work from Knockbreck. It’s great to see the links between the Emerging Numeracy and the Emerging Literacy skills that are developing in the garden.

    Kirsten – we need a catch-up about crossovers! ☺
