Get Real. Get Messy. Get Maths. Get Outdoors.

August 15, 2017

In celebration of Outdoor Classroom Day and to help you think and plan maths experiences outdoors here are some practical suggestions from Juliet Robertosn, author of 'Messy Maths'…

There are many reasons why maths is a core part of the curriculum worldwide. It provides us with skills and knowledge that can be used in our daily lives.

From the moment we wake up, we are constantly estimating, problem-solving and making quick judgements about quantities and amounts. For example, you may need to check you have the exact change or a bus or wonder if you can still fit into your trousers after several days of a festive celebration.

Read the blog post in full here.

Many of the ideas shared in the blog post are expanded upon in her book: Messy Maths: An Outdoor and Playful Approach for Early Years. There are also more than 750 outdoor ideas and suggestions on her blog, I’m a Teacher Get Me OUTSIDE Here!
