Super Subitising

(0)
The theorist Piaget was the first person to define the term subitising as the ability to instantly recognise the number of objects in a small group without needing to count them. This simple game helps children to learn this key skill. Take the pattern for the number three on a dice, children can recognise that this represents the value of three even if they can’t read the number ‘3’. Children can also see numbers within numbers using dot patters. For example, they can see the numbers two and one within three. When we played this game, children took turns to choose a counter and match it to the number pattern. It proved to be very popular!

Painting in Continuous Provision (Labels)

(0)
I work in a Nursery School where there is a childcare provision. We therefore have a ‘baby room’ and a ‘toddler room’ in addition to the Nursery School classroom. In each room there are paints in pots and easels. What new skill are they learning with the resources provided? Admittedly their artwork should improve as they develop but I wanted to add more thought to the skills that I wanted them to learn through their play e.g. mixing, quantity, responsibility, cause and effect. I have now set up a self dispensing paint provision using a palette rather than paint pots. It means that they have the ability to mix paint to create new colours. Also a range of painting materials have been provided, not just the typical thick paint brush. I printed the labels onto A4 self adhesive sheets and cut them to size. To stop the paint from drying out and clogging the pump I have added water and a drop of dishwasher detergent. If they do clog, soak the pump in warm water and leave overnight. The bottles themselves came from Poundstretcher and originally had hand soap in them. Skills based learning, adding challenge to the painting provision #EYFS #learningthroughplay #learningthroughart #ContinuousProvision

Data Analysis - Graph Plotting Skills

(1)
I have created this worksheet to support A-Levels students to plot data accurately, but could easily be used with GCSE students. I deliver it as part of a lesson, prior to them doing a practical where they are required to demonstrate this as a skill. The data looks at the effect of temperature on the growth of * Onchorynchus mykiss* (Rainbow trout).

Whilst I do not claim that these are of the quality you would purchase from a science shop, they are certainly good enough for use in class. Obviously quality is also dependent upon your printer and please only print on printable OHP acetate film . If you use the incorrect type it can melt inside your printer and wreck it. Method Print out on printable transparency acetate film 24 micrometers per A4 sheet Cut out and use directly (no need to put on a slide) Each interval is 500um
