We have been using loose parts on our maths table this week.
We had natural materials such as corks, pegs, wood cuts, card circles, wooden wheels and bamboo mats.
The children could choose how they accessed the provision.
Some children chose to use the parts to build with and talked about the size of their towers.
Some children created or completed repeating patterns using the pieces.
Some children counted out different objects and matched them to number cards.
We continued our learning in the outdoor area using objects and finding patterns in the environment.
