Fly to the end of the garden path by counting the wings on minibeasts

You will need

The Wing it! gameboard (see A3 poster); copies of the Wing it! picture cards and recording sheet (see back of A3 poster); 1-3 and 1-6 dice; pencils and paper.

Whole class

Sit the children in a circle, so that everyone can see a copy of the gameboard. Look at the board together. Notice the numbers on the stones in the garden. Ask the children to guess what zero, two and four might relate to. Ask, Could it be the number of legs? Invite the children to name animals with zero, two and four legs. For older children ask, What do you notice about these numbers? What would the next even number be? Can the children name creatures with six, eight and ten legs?
