We have been having fun exploring shape and space and number through the indoor and outdoor environments. The children have been building with wooden blocks, crates and cardboard boxes as they explored 3D shape. They have compared weight of objects using a variety of scales. They have used tweezers to collect play bugs and dinosaurs, matching them colour and counting them. The children made dough cakes with number candles, matching the correct number of candles to the numerals. They chalked around numbers and 2D shapes, matched numbers to the giant number line, washed cars and counted the clean ones. The Numicon frozen with sea creatures and numbers was popular and encouraged conversation about freezing and melting too. The children drew numbers on cardboard boxes and paper outdoors. They matched beanbags to cups with numbers to 5 and painted over chalk numbers using brushes and water. Matching sticks to numerals was fun too! The children on the beach counted sandcastles, pebbles and shells. In the Bears' Cottage the children ordered the three bowl sizes and matched the correct sized spoons. They also ordered the bears' toothbrushes from longest to shortest. In the Tiger Who Came to Tea role play the teapot needed 5 teabags to make a pot of tea and the cups and saucers needed matching and counting too. The children counted and recognised numbers on the three tins of tiger food. Look on the Tiger Who Came to Tea subpage to see the photos.
