Choo-choo…here comes the rope train!

Oaks children were very inventive this week…creating a great game with a rope, that turned into a train! The train driver led the way, with passengers joining along the route. Not only was it great fun, but also demonstrated lots of developing social skills and negotiation, a huge amount of problem solving (especially when theĀ  rope became wrapped around trees), and plenty of language and communication skills.

One of the activities on offer was colour matching-looking closely at a selection of natural objects and finding similar colour cards. This promoted lots of discussion…

Oaks children also had the opportunity to use and play with some number stones-using them for counting, adding, ordering and matching…and some of the class had fun investigating the mini-beast discovery table…

The outdoor ‘loose parts’ store was well used too…with drainpipes, tubes, cable reels, ropes, wooden planks and foam bricks all featuring in this ball run!

As always, a lovely happy morning all round.
