One of our little boys had the fantastic idea of digging for treasure in our sand tray. We added telescopes and magnifying glasses to make us in to real pirates and help with our search.
After we had collected some treasure we laid it out to inspect it with the magnifying glass. We even did some counting.
This little girl enjoys using her counting skills in every activity she does. Independently she correctly touch counts using the numicon pieces and towards the end of her activity she was beginning to match the quantity with the correct numeral.
We had a visitor to our Forest School today, a little mouse. We watched him run around and tried to think about what he might eat. Ali guessed “stick” and Jacob said “a flower”. We tried lots of different things although what he liked the most was cheese and a tiny piece of bread!
