Buckets, wells, and mini-beast wood-cookies

Maples had a wonderful morning! They worked hard, co-operated, were very creative and produced some great work.

We started off thinking about the part of the Superworm story where Beetle falls down the well…superworm-prv-4-983743 well…and then Mrs. Smith set a challenge to make mini wells in the digging pit. The results were brilliant! But the resilience, the thinking, the trying out and the persistence in the task was even more wonderful to see. As Ruby told us…”It was really hard, but I did it!”

We also investigated with buckets…and through their play the children discovered (and really enjoyed trying out) different ways of moving the bucket up and down, how to use different speeds,  what happened when we let go of the rope, whether  being further away or closer made a difference, what happened when they added or removed heavier items to/from the buckets, how to work together to lift heavier objects

…and how to be creative and use other resources to join in and extend the game!

Lastly, we continued to learn about mini-beasts…this week choosing a mini-beast to draw onto a wood-cookie. Maples will be using a drill next week to make a hole in their wood-cookie…they are very much looking forward to this!
