Making up games

We have access to lots of resources in the classroom, in different areas. We are learning to use them and we are developing our own thinking through our play. Yesterday, some children made up a game using a number line and beanbags, throwing a beanbag and seeing which number they could land on! This resulted in conversation about the size of numbers and how far they threw them. Sometimes we have support to get going or to take turns, but it is great to see the ideas the children are developing in their play.
