# Bookbug at Glenwood

In all our rooms we love exploring our favourite books. We use puppets and props to help us retell traditional tales.

“The troll is scary! He tries to eat the goats. I like the bit when the goat hits him with its horns.”

Taking part in regular Bookbug sessions, we have enjoyed listening to familiar stories and we have been learning some new songs, as well as reciting our favourite nursery rhymes.

Look out for links to our Google meet Bookbug sessions next week for Math Week Scotland and you can join in from home too!

# Maths Week Scotland

We celebrated Maths Week Scotland by taking part in many mathematical activities both indoors and out.

We went on a Maths Walk in our local area and spotted numbers, shapes and patterns all around us.

Our Family Fun Bags took maths into our families’ homes as they made playdough and used the playdough for mathematical activities such as measuring, counting and number rhymes.

# Out and about on our Maths Scavenger Hunt.

Last week each group got a chance to go on a Maths Scavenger Hunt – looking for shapes, numbers and patterns, as well as finding matching leaf shapes and looking for tall and short things.

A huge thank you to those parents and carers who were able to join us on our adventures.

# A Final Maths Walk

The final Maths Walk for the children this week took them to the shop with a challenge to buy a treat for snack!

They chose biscuits in 2 different shapes – rectangles and circles – and with the help of the adults worked out that they could buy 10 packets with £5 and there would be enough for everyone at nursery to share.

The sun was shining as we set off on our first walks this morning and we even spotted a semi-circle shaped moon in the sky! Our walks have different maths challenges…

# Maths Week Scotland is coming!

Maths Week Scotland is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits, joy and beauty of maths.

Each group will be going on a walk in the local community to investigate one area of maths together and we would like parents and carers to join us!
