Expressive Arts and Design

Understanding the World: The Natural World

  • Explore the natural world around them,
  • Making observations
  • Knowing some similarities and differences between the natural world around them and contrasting environments.

Numeracy

Practice counting

Subitising

The three sheep in the background is a good example.
  • Helping children to make links between numbers which solidifies their understanding of core numeracy
  • It can make working out math problems faster
  • Helps with pattern recognition
  • Children don’t become overly reliant on counting, so can be good for children who can count confidently up to 5 to push further.

Spot the tricky words

Even my two year old loves Choo-Choo World. Together we play eye spy with colours of the tracks and reinforce vocabulary by spotting the farm animals. She was amused by the sheep in the hot air balloon and loved pressing the tunnel button!
