๐Ÿ’ซOur Wish List๐Ÿ’ซ

Our dare devils have almost destroyed the axles on a push along JCB. It has become a favourite to sit on and go speeding down the hill.

If anyone has a ride-on in the depth of your garden, no longer being used, we would love to give it back some life. It doesn't matter what conditions it is in, as long as it isn't broken and doesn't have sharp plastuc!

Can anyone help save our JCB's working life?

Cardboard tube binoculars, bird books, nests and a tally!

Our environment is ever-changing! It naturally progresses following the children's interests and the way they use the space.

The children had grown old of our reading den... So now we have a reading shed. A little cosy nook to snuggle down with a teddy๐Ÿป and a blanket to read or listen to their favourite stories. ๐Ÿ“–

Who knows what this shed might be in a few months time?

There's a fire in the Utendรธrs!!! ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Thankfully the firefighter were at hand. Telling others to stay back as fire is hot!

It soon turned into a water fight ๐Ÿ’ฆ

Lots of Early Writing Skills!

The children were using the animals to create footprints in the sand. 'Why do small animals have bigger feet?'

They then investigated the feet and why some might have bigger feet. Miss Cook thought it would be a good idea to see if the children could line the animals up; starting with the smallest feet going up to the biggest.

[05/12/21]   ๐Ÿ’ฅTeaching in the Moment ๐Ÿ’ฌ

Miss Cook is always asked to be the giant!

This time, she wanted her own house so asked the children to get wood and tree trunks to build a house.
Miss Cook asked them what else a giant might need... FOOD!
The children collected leaves in saucepans. They were going to mash it down so it was easier for the giant to eat.

[05/11/21]   ๐Ÿ’ฅTeaching in the Moment ๐Ÿ’ฌ

๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒนThe children were discussed different flowers that they had seen ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒบ

Miss Harrison assisted the children in making wonderful painting.
The children used different parts of their hands to create the flowers. They used their palm to create big flowers and their fingertips for little flowers.

[05/10/21]   ๐Ÿ’ฅTeaching in the Moment ๐Ÿ’ฌ

The children were playing with the building bricks and were making bridges.

Miss Hepburn thought it might be a good idea to test these bridges out with cars.

โฌ‡๏ธโ†ช๏ธโ†™๏ธ Lots of positional language; under, over, around, through. โฌ†๏ธ๐Ÿ”ƒ๐Ÿ”„

A ramp was added at each end by the children, so that they could race the cars down.

๐ŸŽต Do you know the Muffin Man? ๐ŸŽถ

Mrs Underhill thought it might be a good idea to make up our own versions.

We had...

Rocket Man ๐Ÿš€ who lived on Moon Street ๐ŸŒš

Racing Man ๐Ÿ who lived on Car Lane ๐ŸŽ๏ธ

The children were fully engrossed, laughing away and giving their own suggestions and ideas.

'What are you making boys?'
'Ice cream!'
We have raspberry and chocolate.

Old cereal boxes turn into great cones we can fill with delicious topping.
They then sounded out the inital letter of the ingredients, and created a board.

Not sure how many ice creams they sold at ยฃ30! But trade did seem to be busy.

Pure coincidence, it was homemade strawberry frozen yogurt for pudding today ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ“๐Ÿจ

"I'm the good witch" one child exclaimed! ๐Ÿง™๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ

"Well I'm the bad witch, and I'm going to cast a spell on you" Jos said, then went and collected all sorts for her cauldron. ๐Ÿง™๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

Things that the everyday folks leave behind ๐ŸŽถ

We love to reuse... drainpipes, boxes, old sheets, donated toys, special finds in charity shops, old pots and pans... You name it we can find a use!

Our Friends, the Worms!

The worms do a fantastic job at breaking all our fruit and vegetable peelings into fabulous compost so anything that can go in the compost bins we pop in the worms too.

The best bit is the 'worm wee', it is an amazing fertiliser that we put on our growing beds.
