QUIET DAY
Today we only had a quiet day.
Play doesn't have to be pretty or Instagram picture to be valuable

PLAYGROUND
It can seem that things to do with the body is considered less important than the mind - but they are connected.
We move all the time even as adults - why do we get upset when children wriggle?
A physical need to move is important - children need to be given plenty of opportunities to be able to move in a range of ways.
When children move they are aware of where their body is and what it is doing right in that moment - physical activity can be where children learn mindfulness.

HOO ZOO FARM
These are some older pictures. from April Holiday .
Since then our membership passes has expired. A wonderful place which all children loved an happily returned.... there is so much to do.
We visisted so many times during the year and every time we stopped to see the dinosaur land, or we stop for a while to the giant jumping pillow. the adventure playground, the zip wire, all the animals. .... so many memories.
Time to look for a new place.

MORE MATHS
Children learn about one-to-one correspondence. ‘This involves counting the loose parts by matching the number name to each one, and requires hand-eye coordination as well as number skills,

COUNTING
Counting using summer loose parts - flower petals
Visual representation of new mathematical concepts
✅ Tactile, multi sensory learning
✅ Developing fine motor skills
✅ Appealing to child’s own interests - they are interested in flowers and gardening at the moment

WRITING THE ALPHABET
I have to admit that I had this wipe clean book for over 15 years ....possibly even longer.
Has been brought from a charity shop or car boot sale ( can't even remember but definitely was second hand), used by my 2 children and over 40 minding children ( possibly more) and is still in a good usable condition.
One of the favourites for the school age children in our setting. I know the wipe clean books are quiet controversial and not in line with more modern teaching styles but nonetheless we like this book here and we will keep using it ..... plus is nearly a vintage book so will be a shame to keep it on the shelf.

MATHS
Counting may seem as easy as one-two-three to us, but it’s a tricky skill for child to learn. When children are repeating 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 they recite number names from memory.
Counting involves the child understanding the value of that number. Learning about number and counting is really quite complex and involves language, working memory, visualisation and practice. Mastering what we see as very basic number skills is a tough learning journey for children.

So here we did:
Quantification with loose parts
Recongnising numbers
Writting numbers
Understanding numbers values

PLAY IN THE SAND
Whether shaped into castles, dug, dripped, sifted, or buried, sand can take many different forms, thus offering endless opportunities for fun and learning!
Allowing your child to play in the sand helps them to develop fine motor skills like those necessary to use a small shovel, pull a truck, and build a castle or moat. By burying themselves in sand, and feeling their body position within the sand, children are engaging their proprioceptive sense, or the sense of their body relative to space.

SEVERN VALLEY COUNTRY PARK
Childhood isn't meant to replicate adult life- sitting in cubicles and desks day after day.
Moving, exploring, running, and activity are what children need to thrive. That is where they learn how the world works and their place in it. Let them move! -Karen DeBeus

FEET PAINTING
What do children learn from feet painting?
As well as resulting in some amazing creations, walking with slippery, painted feet helps children to develop their balance, coordination and core stability, and also encourages them to make connections between their movements and the marks they make.

STRAWBERRY PICKING
Today we went for strawberry picking at Bearstone Fruit Farm.
The children loved picking their own strawberries this morning, we found so many big juicey ones! Most of then have already been demolished, but we did manage some counting and size ordering before they were eaten. They all took a punnet of strawberries at home so they can enjoy with their mummies and daddies.

WALLABIES
We had a request from the children to go and see the baby wallabies. We saw them few weeks ago and the children were very excited to see the babies going inside and out of the pouch.
We learned that young wallabies, like their larger kangaroo cousins, are called joeys. Even after a joey leaves the pouch, it often returns to jump in when danger approaches. Also we learned that adult males are called boomers, jacks, and bucks; while adult females are called jills, or flyers. Groups of wallabies, are known as troupes, courts, or mobs.

FIRE STATION
We had an amazing oportunity to visit our local fire station.
Thank you so much for accommodating us and all other childminders.
- we were able use the hose to water the fire
- able to catch a ride in the brand new fire engine ( even the older child aka my husband was excited about that ). He kept taking all day and evening about the new Fire engine,.
- got to explore the clothes and boots fire fighters wear
- got to meet few fire fighters ( we learned that the fire fighters can be man and womens).
- see the lights and hear the sounds! It was so loud.
And so much more..... what an amazing experience for children and adults alike.

MIXED AGE GROUPS
7th June 2022

Photos from A Bee C Childcare's post 13/08/2022

MIXED AGE GROUPS
Childminders have always operated with mixed-age groups and successfully delivered the EYFS.
Research has found that mixed-age grouping can be a beneficial approach:
‘Often, a child will like to spend time with younger children as they will allow them to be unsophisticated longer than his or her age peers will.’ (Katz et al, 1990)
‘In a group of children of mixed ages, they have different expectations of each other. The younger children may look to the older ones for some contributions, whereas the older children look upon the younger ones as needing their contributions. It is recognised that there is more turn-taking, social responsibility and sensitivity in mixed-age group children.’ (Chase and Doan, 1994)
‘In an age-mixed environment, older play companions erect scaffolds that draw toddlers into collaborative social play.’ (Konner 1976)
‘It is a most unnatural and cruel thing to put people of the same age together. It is one of the cruel things we do to children; it breaks the thread of social life, there is no nourishment for social life.’ (Montessori, 1949)
Early years consultant Penny Tassoni agrees that there are many benefits to having mixed-age groups. For example, older children gain confidence and empathy, while younger children gain greater aspiration to join in and have access to more challenging resources. She says it can be ‘incredibly advantageous’ for supporting sibling relationships too.

JURASSIC PARK TELFORD
Dinosaurs once ruled Earth and we're continually learning more about them. Most peoples might know of the T. Rex and the Triceratops, but have you heard of the duck-billed Edmontosaurus or the peacock-like Nomingia. Well I havent ..... but luckily my assistant knows more then I do about the dinosaurs. So everytime we are visiting he is teelling us some interesting facts about less knows dinosaurs, from raptors to tyrannosaurs and sauropods to ornithopods.
Children amaze me everytime with their ability to remember and pronunce those names.

FEEDING FARM ANIMALS
We believe hands-on activities are the best way to learn about animals and to teach respect for living things.
With our regular visits to the Farm, children get to experience a far wider range of creatures, and ones that wouldn’t normally be kept as family pets such as piglets and goats.

SHOWING EMPHATY FOR OUR FRIEND
Children learn empathy both from watching adults and from experiencing other adults empathy for them. When we empathize with young children they develop trusting, secure attachments with us. Those attachments are key to their wanting to adopt our values and to model our behavior, and therefore to building their empathy for others.

CHESTER ZOO
Environmental awareness: A zoo is a place where environment finds real care and nurture. When children visit a zoo they learn and realise the importance of environmental awareness and its impact on people's lives.
Zoo visits enable children to learn about animals effectively, foster cognitive development and promote empathy and compassion. Observing and discussing animals create an interest in conservation and the realization that animals too have feelings and emotions

HOW ARE YOU FEELING ?
We’ve talked about our emotions and what we do when we’re happy, sad, angry.
It's important to develop an emotional vocabulary because it helps us know what we are feeling and gives us clues of what we need to do. Feelings are there for a reason.
