World Maths Day (16.3.21) - 1 is a snail 🐌, 10 is a crab 🦀 



We listened to the story 1 is a snail, 10 is a crab which is a counting by feet book.

We have recognised numerals up to 10. We have explored sea creatures in the water tray by counting arms on star fish and legs on a octopus. We even found a crab in there! We discovered how many sea creatures we could catch in the nets. We’ve all had a go at drawing a crab with 10 feet and we learnt that their front two feet have a second job as claws. What a busy day!
