The Nursery children at Michael Faraday School have been experimenting with shapes to help create some patterns. This type of learning helps to develop their non-verbal reasoning skills. It is one of the early stages of maths learning that is taught at our school.
The children are given a free choice as to which shapes and patterns they would like to create. Some cards with existing patterns are available for inspiration. Some of the children arranged the shapes by colours, whilst others decided to use size.
Elsewhere in the Nursery and we have been enjoying watching the Mortimer Be Quiet story. We have also been reading Stone Soup. This is a story that helps the children to understand the importance of sharing.
