The Foundation Years Trust - Working with 0-5s

This week's Adventures at Home topic is all about having fun with maths: Jen's Talktime Video has ideas for how we can encourage our children to develop their understanding of mathematical concepts.  We also have some excellent activity ideas: 

  • Make and use a treasure map, a map to a den you’ve made or a map to the garden. This is a great activity to encourage the use of positional language. Crawl under the table and over the cushions. Use terms such as right, left, behind and in front, on, near, beneath, up, and down. There is so much language to explore!
  • Encourage your little ones to help you with the washing! Hang the socks on the washing line together and make pairs, compare length, order socks by size, count them, group them, add socks and take some away. Have fun with maths!

For more useful information and fun ideas, see our facebook and instagram pages:


In the absence of physical groups, Foundation Years Trust is delighted to announce our virtual Mini Explorers!

Are you a first-time parent?

Do you have a new-born or young children at home?

Do you want to meet new parents or virtually catch up with friends?

Mini Explorers is a chance to stay connected, have some fun with your little ones at home and celebrate the importance of your role!

Group will run on a Wednesday at 9.30am, and our first will be on the 13th of January. We hope to see you there!
