This Set of Weighted Eggs offers a rich variety of opportunities to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and approach problem solving in imaginative ways. In KS1 children need opportunities to develop their mathematical reasoning across all areas of the curriculum – and with a carefully planned maths area you can offer a wide range of resources to enrich children’s mathematical thinking.
For older children exploring, space, shape and measure through hands on, open-ended activities and games brings maths to life. This set of 8 eggs is highly appealing and wonderfully tactile to help develop children’s comparison and sorting skills. They will stimulate both language development and mathematical skills, as children sort the eggs by size and weight. Children will love exploring the different sizes and feeling the relative weights of the different eggs in their hands. Childen can collect, sort and even use in the mud kitchen!
