Reception - The 3 ‘M’s!
As an Early Years team we use what we call The 3 ‘M’s in all of our interactions with our children. The 3 ‘M’s stand for, Mark-Making, Making Conversation and Mathematics. Today’s nature inspired tough-spot activity highlights how all of these areas were explored by the children. Children writing labels and making mathematical drawings, children talking about colours, textures and the seasons and children grouping, sorting and counting objects. Play, sprinkled with the 3 ‘M’s, is a powerful learning model.
