Number and Letter Fun!


Recently we have been exploring magnetic letter and number panels. This activity provided the children with lots of different opportunities to explore their numbers, letters whilst using their fine motor skills to better their numeral skills and recognition of letters.

The children had lots of fun choosing what numbers or letters that they would like to use during this activity and we discussed what different numbers and letters they were using. Staff helped the children recognise new letters or numbers that they did not know and also spelt out words that began with the different letters.

The children all initiated play with one another and began counting together, they all counted from 0-10 with the each other, helping the younger children. They had lots of fun practicing their fine motor skills and hand eye co-ordination by guiding the pen over the ball to make the different shapes, letters and numbers! It was amazing to see them take turns so beautifully with one another!

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xx
