The rain doesn’t stop Early Years

 

We saw a huge change in weather after all the recent sunshine we have had. The rain didn’t stop the children in Early Years having fun though. They went on a puddle hunt to try and find the biggest puddles to jump in. The children decided to make cars out of crates and worked together, pulling each other around an obstacle course they made.

 

To help the children understand the weather and their environment, they need to be in it.Elizabeth Jarman, 2014

EYFS in the Forest

The children love taking their learning outside, whatever the weather! Look at all these happy, confident and engaged children directing their own learning. The forest helps us learn so much about the world and our local environment!

Experimenting with circuits

Some children in early years were experimenting with circuits this week.

They showed great teamwork, concentration and problem solving whilst learning about the different parts and functions of a simple circuit.
