Finding shapes and numbers on National Numeracy Day!

Shapes and numbers are all around us, in our architecture and in nature - you may not notice them until you really look! This walking month, it's the perfect time see how many shapes and numbers you and the kids can find when you are out and about on your next walk, or even around the house if it's a rainy day! Gather the family together for some fun numeracy activities...

Get creative and try to take photos of these shapes in everyday objects...

Which shape is below?

Counting the number of bricks on a wall may take you a long time... but making a hopscotch in the garden with chalk, or imagining the numbers on your walk, is a fun way to practise counting...

Finding numbers can be a fun and creative way to practise numeracy. You can see numbers in lots of things, or you can make your own numbers with objects...

Which number can you see below?

Activity: take a picture with hidden numbers and share with your friends and family to see what they can find. For an extra challenge, try to find something with the numbers from 1-10!
