Water and Mud Exploration
We worked on our self help and physical skills by putting on waterproofs and wellingtons ready for a day of water and mud play!
We used decorator brushes and rollers to develop our shoulder and arm muscles, vital to writing skills, by mark making on the walls with water. We 'painted' the slide and house too. Filling and carrying buckets, cans and containers and transporting water all help to develop our muscles essential for writing, general gross motor skills and independence too. It has been great fun racing in the meadow, playing hide and seek, 'cooking' in the mud kitchen, digging, creating potions, balancing on the crates, digging, looking for mini-beasts and treasure and climbing the trees!
Some of our highlights were working co-operatively to construct a crate bridge to walk and leap across over the water, the mountains and lava. Emma said the bridge was to help us cross over the sharks and Lottie said it went across a rainbow. Matilda and Poppy helped lots of friends climb high on the tree trunk holding onto a rope. Daisy climbed the highest of all! Oliver and George painted the slide 'brown;' Jasmine and Elena loved painting the house. George sang 'London Bridge' as he walked over the crate bridge and we all joined in. George also enjoyed flying around like a wizard.
Brody found a worm and lots of children found snails too. Theodor had a tiny ant walking on his finger tips. Alfie found a dinosaur egg! Lots of children loved making magic potions, tea for the tiger and soup in the mud kitchen. Mila made rainbow soup, Becca made curry, Archie made chocolate ice cream and Charlotte made tiger soup.
