Creating Flower Soup!


Our Sunflowers focus recently has been all about developing our maths and imagination in lots of different ways. One activity the children enjoyed was creating their own flower soup!

This allowed them to use both their imagination and their knowledge of different quantities throughout. It also allowed the children to use number names spontaneously within their play. They used their social skills by working together as a team to create their flower soup and were able to show understanding of instructions by following a recipe amazingly!

They took it in turns to use the resources and mix the soup together. They helped each other to read the numbers out for each instruction. It’s so important for children to learn all about different maths skills in a range of activities as it provides them with such important life skills and helps them to problem solve and measure.

The children displayed great enjoyment in this activity, pretending to taste the soup at the end and describing it as ‘yummy’ and ‘delicious’!

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xxx
