Looking at the moon helps children to notice changes and to use the language of fraction and division to describe what they see. Children will learn words such as full, half, quarter, bigger and smaller which we use to describe how big something is after we divide it.
Planning celebrations helps children to think about the sequence in which things can be done. First we decide what we are going to do, then we invite people, and then we cook. Talking about planning helps children to predict what may happen and the order it will happen in.
Making decorations helps children develop their creativity and fine motor skills.
