EYFS

In Early Years we explore mathematics in lots of different ways. We follow the children's interests and we weave mathematical learning through all of our topics.

Maths is everywhere, Spring 2.

This half term we have explored the theme of Winter and have explored geography and science, as well as mathematics and English through this topic. We have also looked at Chinese culture as we explored Chinese New Year. This is a great way to develop our understanding of ordinal numbers as we think about the story explaining the Chinese New Year race. We have been experimenting with shape as we used junk modelling to build a dragon, what shapes are the best to make a horn, ears or eyes? This has also given us the chance to explore music, counting the beat of the drums as the dragon dances and repeating patterns of sound.

We have been trying to follow the pattern of music to make the dragon dance. We counted the beats as we played, "1,2,3,4...1,2,3,4"
