Outdoor Maths in Paddington Class

This afternoon we enjoyed a fantastic afternoon in Forest School.  The children made mud pancakes and dug for worms who were names Sarah, Sally and Sue because they made ‘S’ shapes!  They also threaded cheerios onto pipe cleaners to make bird feeders The threading skill is great for their hand strength which is important for handwriting.  The children were asked if there were equal amounts of cheerios on each pipe cleaner and encouraged to explain how they knew if there was or not.  The children then put equal amounts of 2, 5 or 10 on each and I challenged them to count in 2s, 5s or 10s to work out how many they had altogether, great work Paddington Class!

Here are also some photos of the Children sharing their book in a box creations and of our time sharing books with year 5 on World Book Day which were mentioned in yesterday’s blog.

Have a great weekend
