Animal arithmetic!!

On a recent walk the children enjoyed getting up close to the rams in the orchard next to nursery. They counted them all and after a couple of recounts decided there were 13.

We didn't have to go much further to see more animals, with the field in front of the nursery full of stud horses.  

They were right at the bottom of the field, but the children were keen to continue their counting skills. We counted 8 horses and then went on to work out there were more sheep than horses -

practical outdoor maths is so much more fun!!
