1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 frame Natural Sorting Tray Set
Having an understanding of numbers and how they can be represented is fundamental to mathematical development. The process starts very early on, and you can help support and nurture it with numeracy play.
As a set, these five beautiful wooden trays show clearly how numbers increase in size. Use them with counters to explore what number bonds can be created on a single tray.
Combine trays to explore how numbers relate to each other and can be presented as arrays.
These trays are also ideal for use in literacy learning - the only limit is your imagination!
Largest tray size: 380 x 80 x 20mm. Smallest tray size: 75 x 80 x 20mm.
Made from responsibly-sourced FSC approved beech wood.
Sorting Trays are perfectly suited for use alongside our Yellow Door pebble sets:
Our range of home and outdoor learning resources make it easy to give your child new experiences and learning opportunities through play. We stock Yellow Door educational resources, Sumblox Maths blocks, Terra Kids Outdoor Toys& Tools and Reel Wood letters & numbers, as well as books such as Wild Tribe Heroes' stories with an environmental message.
All our resources are either made from FSC sustainably sourced wood, are incredibly durable or allow for unique outdoor experiences that we hope will help your child love exploring, nature and see the "big picture" as they grow.
The majority of our parcels are sent via Royal Mail 2nd Class signed for postage - this is free for all orders over £25.00 and charged at £3.99 for those below this. We aim to dispatch within 3 working days of your order and you'll receive a shipping notification with the Royal Mail reference for your parcel included.
Need it sooner?
You can upgrade to Priority Dispatch & Tracking for an additional £2.99 charge, though all orders of over £65 are automatically upgraded to this option for free. With this option, we will process your order before any others, which tends to be within 24 hours. This option is usually a 24 hour tracked service, but due to the reduced service hours at the Royal Mail Depot, we have found that using a 1st class tracked service works out with a faster delivery.
Parcels that are over 2kg will be sent via Hermes - this will be their usual service for most parcels, with their "next day" option for those with Priority Dispatch.

We aim to dispatch all orders within 48 hours, but at busy times it can take 3-5 working days. Options for delivery are:
Standard Delivery - Most orders are sent out via Royal Mail with 2nd class signed for postage (estimated 2-5 working days); parcels over 2kg are sent via Hermes. This is free for all orders over £25, and costs just £3.99 for those below that.
Priority Dispatch and Tracking - Need it sooner? No problem! With this option, we will pick and post before any other parcels, and dispatch will be either via 1st class Royal Mail or Hermes Next Day (please do be aware though that we are unable to make guarantees about when items will arrive, as it is completely in the hands of the postie/courier once we hand the parcel over)

Live overseas? At the moment, we aren't able to ship to EU countries outside of the Uk, but we are shipping as usual to the US. Please be aware though that we cannot send most pyjamas to the US due to the differences in labelling regulations between the two countries.
We use the most eco friendly packing option available to us for each parcel. Most clothing orders are sent with biodegradable (and therefore compostable) mailer bags, or those made from sugar cane.
Toys will be boxed either using packing sent to us or our own, made from recycled cardboard. We pack with paper or re-use packing materials sent to us. Tape used is paper based, except where parcels are too heavy for us to be sure that this tape will be suitable - sometimes we need to use a plastic alternative in order to ensure safe transit, but are always looking for other options.
Our goal is to make it as easy for people to return as it was to buy; we want our customers to feel confident that they can return items easily and for any reason at all!
You can set up a return using our returns portal at https://www.smallecosteps.co.uk/a/returns . This will provide you with a Collect+ returns label which you can pop onto your parcel and drop at any Collect+ drop off point, such as your local Spar. This fully tracked service costs £3.99 for any sized parcel (deducted from refund) but may not be the most cost effective for smaller parcels or clothing. You can return using any postal method, just include your order number. We will process your refund within 7 days of receipt.
If ever an item comes to you damaged, contains faults or isn't what you ordered, we cover the cost of the Collect+ return - please get in touch if you'd rather use Royal Mail.
Items must be returned to us unused and in the same condition that they were received, with original packaging and any tags still in place.
