How do we promote Maths in the Nursery?

In Nursery we plan carefully for the different elements of mathematical learning.  We hope to develop an enjoyment for number and number sense whilst encouraging the use of mathematical talk.  The children will also be able to engage in shape, space and measure work through construction activities, baking and playdough club.
