Thank you so much to Sara-Jane Macaskill for inviting me to visit their Numeracy Garden at Knockbreck Primary  – I was so impressed and inspired by the wonderful numeracy learning and collaboration taking place!

As you can see from the photos, this is a really inspiring example of how to use an outdoor space with existing concrete materials adapted from the classroom, alongside natural and outdoor resources to create a safe, fun and nurturing learning environment!

Here the Primary 1s and 7s were working together to develop, consolidate and extend a range of numeracy skills and knowledge – it was wonderful to see how the older children were using questioning and discussion to promote thinking and understanding. I also loved how this helped all the children see that numeracy is all around us, not just in the classroom!

I hope these photos inspire you too – it would be lovely to hear your thoughts and comments. A huge thank you again to Knockbreck and Sara-Jane for sharing all their hard work and fantastic use of outdoor learning.
