🌱🌧🌈 This week in Innovators and Inventors 🌈🌧🌱

The children have been planting daffodil bulbs this week in the garden. We have been talking about the plants growing and how we can make them grow big and tall. They showed lots of interest in the bulbs texture and appearance, and used a tool to help bury them in the soil. We filled watering cans because we said they needed ”water”, and also had a look on the class iPad to see what they will look like when they have grown.

Come and join us at Spring. 🌷

Next week, the children will be able to explore a dinosaur land tuff spot. The children have shown lots of interest in the ‘Tyrannosaurus Drip’ story this week, so we have extended this interest ready for Monday. The tuff spot will support our positioning and transportation schemas, and also encourage communication skills amongst the children as they tell stories using the props. We want to wish everyone a lovely weekend, and we will see you all next week. ☀️

🐿🌱🌍 What we have been doing this week 🌍🌱🐿

Innovators and Inventors:

We have been looking at and talking about the change in weather recently, and what that might mean for nature and the world around us. Our carer noticed a lovely unopened conker on her walk and several others of different sizes, and wanted to show the children what she had found. We discussed the unopened conkers ”spikey” texture and “green and brown” appearance. We also developed our rotational and positioning schemas, when turning the conkers in our hands and when lining them up from ’biggest’ to ’smallest’.

Come and join us at Spring, and tell us what you can find 🧐

🧪🌷🍃 Innovators next week 🍃🌷🧪

in the tuff spot next week, we have created a mystical garden for the children to explore. the children will be able to develop their fine motor skills, socialisation and their understanding of the natural world around them. schema’s such as ‘connecting‘ where they can open and close the bottles, ‘transforming‘ where they can mix the potions together, and ‘positioning‘ where they can sort and order the different items will also be explored.

🔨🚧🔩 What we have been doing this week 🔩🚧🔨

Innovators and Inventors:

We have been taking part in a woodwork activity. We used protective gloves and goggles whilst using a hammer to hit nails into wood. We were supervised by our carers, and encouraged to have a go developing confidence and other physical skills. Schemas such as transforming and rotation were supported through the children’s desire to turn the nails using their fingers and the hammer in their hands, and wanting to create effects in the wood when hitting the nails.

Come and join in the fun at Spring, and see what you could do.

This morning discoverers (18/30 months) have been exploring gloop. The children used their senses to explore what happens to the gloop when we put it in our hands. 🙌
We also put the gloop in and out the cups and watched as it slide out the cups, when we turned them upside down.
One of the schemas in this activity was continuing.

🏫🚗🐄 Innovators (36+m) Next Week 🐄🚗🏫

We will be talking about going to school next week. As more and more of our preschool children leave us for another adventure, we will be thinking about and talking about what might be happening in a weeks time for all of us. The children will be able to discuss what they might see on their travels to school, who might take them, and who might be in their class at school. Our creche children have been a great support to our preschool children as well, talking to them about what to expect, but also letting them know that there are still a lot of things that will be the same. We want to wish all the children and their families who have left for school all the very best, we will miss you all! We will see all the children who are returning next week, but have a lovely weekend everyone. 😊

We’ve recently introduced a story of the week in which children select a book of interest and we incorporate the story through different activities throughout the week. We read the story and then the children can use the props from our shelf in their play. The first week was dinosaurs 🦖🦕

We have been using our fingers to feel the different shapes and marks imprinted on them, we have then been using paper and crayons to create marks using them. All the children had a good go and enjoyed the process from start to finish. They were proud to show off their achievements. Come and join us to see what you could create! ☺️

Next week, Innovators will be looking at letters and creating words with them. We have provided the children with their name cards as a prompt, but added extra words to allow the children to think about what letters we need to make up others words. This activity will support the children’s fine motor skills, but also provide an opportunity for them to learn socially. We are excited to see what words our Innovators come up with. We hope everyone has a lovely weekend, and we will see you all next week! ☀️

Innovators will be able to explore a ‘Room on the Broom’ tuff spot. The children have been interested in the story sack this week, so the tuff spot will provide an opportunity to further the children’s interest in this story. The tuff spot will also become a talking point related to our natural world, where we can discuss the outdoors and what we might see on our own adventures. We want to wish everyone a great weekend! See you next week ☀️🦋🌿

🔴⚖️🌿 Innovators this week 🌿⚖️🔴

Innovators have been exploring and manipulating an outdoor course for their balls to roll down. We provided bamboo sticks and structures to support their imagination during this activity. The children used trial and error and assessed some risk throughout, understanding what might happen when they balance certain sticks at differing heights. They had lots of fun making comments like “this is awesome” and “I’m using a big stick”. They worked together, shared the resources and tested their ideas during a very interactive and creative opportunity. Come and join in the fun!
