You may like to consider creating a visually appealing outdoor maths area at school, which will encourage mathematical learning to take place in the context of children's outdoor play. Going on a maths trail or a maths walk in your locality gives learners opportunities to apply their mathematical knowledge and skills to 'real' contexts. Read Becky Moseley's article below which outlines key factors to consider as you plan a trail. You may also choose to use particular aspects of your environment (such as house numbers, window designs...) as a stimulus for working on specific mathematical ideas.

We hope you and your learners enjoy being mathematical outdoors.

*You can watch a recording of the webinar in which we discussed the mathematical thinking which can be prompted by these activities.*
