ECC – Monkey Room and Outdoor Learning

We have been busy doing lots of active maths both inside and outside.

They have been using games like hopscotch to develop their number recognition, counting and ordering.

They have also been using natural objects such as pinecones and conkers to practice counting, estimating and matching amounts to the number.

ECC – The O Factor

Catrine ECC was an exhibitor at East Ayrshire’s O Factor, this was a showcase for all the amazing outdoor learning that is happening throughout East Ayrshire.

Jan Wardrop our Outdoor Learning Champion in the ECC was a Nominee for the Excellent Outdoor Practitioner Award. This was for the hard work she has put in to improving and extending Outdoor Learning in the ECC. This was shown in the efforts she put in to the stall she set up for the O Factor exhibition. Practitioners from other centres showed lots of interest and Jan was happy to explain all the things we have been doing.

ECC – Monkey Room/ Outdoors

Outdoors we have been using the ladders, planks and crates; working together to build them up.

We have been using the song box outside. We pick the song we want to sing using the props in the box.
