  • Maths
  • Amounts
  • Sharing

Three boys are making bread dough outside in the nursery garden. They need to divide it up between themselves.

Notice

  • How are the children learning? Which areas of development, engagement and characteristics of learning can you observe?
  • In what ways does the adult support the children’s learning?
  • How does the activity support the children’s learning?
  • What is valuable about the materials provided as learning resources?

Reflect

What are your thoughts about:

  • What and how are the children learning?
  • The role of the adult in this interaction – how did she support the children?
  • The value of this real life activity for the children?

Respond

What would you do to:

  • Encourage the children’s problem solving skills?
  • Model behaviours for young children and show how useful they are?

What next:

  • Do you need to incorporate mathematical concepts into activities that the children can do themselves?
