Reception had lots of fun in the the wooded area searching for bugs. During the carpet session the teachers modelled how to create a bug hunt tally chart using marks and counting. Together we found out the totals and compared the most and least common bugs then found out the difference. The children went on to create their own real life bug hunt tally chart and together we compared the totals. The children were very excited about this activity and were amazed when they found two grass snakes hiding together. What fun we had learning in maths this morning!
