Exploring Loose Parts

In Nursery we encourage children to lead and develop their own learning and develop their own ideas and ways of working. To help with this we have introduced ‘Loose Parts’ to our environment, these are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up and taken apart. Our children use their knowledge, creativity and imagination to create numerous creations. 

Mahek has created a pattern, during this activity Mahek uses mathematical vocabulary to talk about her learning.

Mahek – ‘I have a pattern, that’s all the same things on this line. Some are big and some things are small. I counted them; I couldn’t fit anymore in because there was no space’.
