Buckets of fun…

This morning, Firs class investigated simple pulleys, enjoying working out how to lift the buckets up and drop them back down to the ground. We added stones to feel different weights and to see how much harder we had to pull to raise theĀ  buckets…

“I wonder if I can lift myself up?…”

 

During the afternoon, Willows class also had a go at using the buckets. Some of the children were able to work out which bucket was heavier and then thought about how they could make it lighter…

We also had a go at decorating the tee-pee den…both classes selected ribbons to weave in and out of the strings…

And in the digging pit today, some dinosaurs had appeared! Firs enjoyed playing with them – using the logs and stumps as their homes…whilst children in Willows worked on creating different areas for theĀ  dinosaurs to play in-including a fabulous swimming pool lined with pebbles.

It’s always great to get really stuck into an activity! This mud kitchen meal was lovingly prepared-each leaf, stick and stone carefully chosen before being added to the mix…

What a lovely, self directed shared activity…a game of peekaboo in the hammock, with shouts of ‘more!’ coming from inside!

And more shared play, a chance to practise core body strength by balancing on a moving skateboard, counting and sorting…and exploring the bushes looking for fairies!!
