What a mathematical Wednesday!
Today our children have been making dough balls to fill scallop shells. As well as refining their physical skills they have been using lots of mathematical language related to size, counting, and estimating how many they made altogether. We also looked at how we could divide ten balls equally between two people. Rosie put two in each shell, then added the others by adding one more to each shell until she had none left, “five, we get five each!’.
Some of us went to collect the eggs.
We collected three eggs to put in our box. There were already four eggs in the box so we added two more and had one left over.
We then decided to see how many quails eggs had been laid. The children handled these very carefully as they have very thin shells and put a total of five in a box.
