    This week in Nursery we have continued to explore the Numicon shapes. Each morning we have been counting how many children are at Nursery and finding the correct Numicon to represent the number. 

    Alongside this we carefully followed a recipe to make Numicon biscuits. We pressed the shapes into the dough and counted the number of circles. 

    We baked the biscuits in the oven and talked about oven safety.
