making Patterns

This week we are looking at, creating and continuing simple repeating patterns.

Here we have used natural resources such as leaves, sticks, conkers, pebbles and pine cones to create a simple repeating pattern. For example: conker, pebble, conker, pebble, conker.

Can you find any objects at…

We have been continuing to explore comparing and measuring length and height. Today some of the Ducklings have been using non-standard units such as cubes, hands and feet to help them measure. Some children have also chosen to use standard units such as centimetres on a ruler.  We have been using…

Length and Height

The Ducklings have been learning to use the comparative vocabulary of length and height. They compared their object with a friend's, saying whether their object was longer/shorter or taller/shorter than their friends.
