Can you find the star?

As part of Maths Week Scotland the toddlers have been busy exploring the different shapes inside various fruit and vegetables.

The children enjoyed using magnifying glasses to see the different shapes inside.

“ I can see a flower”

”I can see a star”    ” in the orange”

 

“ I can see teeth “

The  children have also been exploring the Autumn tray filled with lentils, rice leaves, pine cones and wooden loose parts.

Happy birthday to you!

There has been some children and staff’s birthday’s recently,  so we have been discussing birthday parties and what we would need to have a party!

The children have been creating their own birthday cakes and using different coloured materials to create their own patterns on the cakes.

The children chose different colours and created a simple pattern to make the icing on their cake. This learning experience allows the children to identify different patterns and to copy and complete their own simple pattern.
