Learning to count and add/subtract is one of the first things children will do when they enter school years, and is a key component of Early Years/Foundation stage education. This First Maths set has been designed to support this stage by helping children to learn in a way which makes it as much fun as it is educational.
This set includes magnetic picture pieces, a sums board, numbers and a counting board so that there are various visual aids to support and stimulate. Children can count pictures of familiar items like bananas or cars, which, by using fun illustrations, make it a more playful exercise than using numbers alone, and the inclusion of a dry-wipe pen to copy numbers helps make this an activity that can be repeated over and over again.$29.99

The Maths Game – FUN practice on the go!
Goal: collect the greatest number of smileys.
How to Play: Each player throws a die, the one with the highest number begins. The first player rolls the dice to create a two-digit number. For example, if a 3 and a 1 is rolled the number to be played is either 31 or 13. Using the magnet in the bank, the player needs to formulate a maths equation that the result equals the selected 2 digit number. If correct the player gets a smiley face. As the game progresses the games becomes more challenging – if the formula cannot be made the game ends.$12.99
