I love these cards, especially as I think this is an often neglected yet important aspect of maths! We have done 4-5 activities so far and they hold her attention well and its easy to think of add-ons to extend once you have the initial set up! Def recommend

Hi Nina,

We totally agree that shape, measure and pattern are areas that are often neglacted when it comes to maths. We love that you are enjoying the activities from the pack that you have tried so far and we hope you continue to have lots more fun with them!

Best pack we have!

We received these cards at the weekend and they are my favourite pack so far. We have all of the phonics packs and another maths pack. The activities look so much fun and I don't think my son will realise he is learning. We haven't managed to try any out yet as my son hasn't been feeling well but while he has been having a rest I have been preparing some of the activities for when he is better.
