These skittles are sufficiently robust for use outdoors everyday. A great way for young children to practice number recognition, develop motor skills, whilst also improving their basic mathematics knowledge. They could also be adapted for older children to practice simple addition, adding up the numbers of any they manage to knock down.
In KS1 children need opportunities to develop their mathematical reasoning across all areas of the curriculum. A carefully planned maths area provides them with the resources they need to consolidate their learning. These Outdoor Skittles offer a rich variety of opportunities to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning as well as approaching problem solving in imaginative ways.
By carefully planning your collection of resources, you can create an outdoor curriculum rich in maths opportunities. Children can use their growing mathematical knowledge and understanding so they can develop engaging games and find ways to record rules and scores.
