It was muddy in the woods this morning but we still had lots of fun and did lots of learning!
We had a visitor with us this morning from Buttercups Children’s Centre and she was really impressed with our little learners, and even had to check how old some of them were because they were so brilliant. She was telling me how amazed she was with how the children are so sure footed on the uneven ground and the slopes in the woods, and how well they can move around obstacles. This is a really important thing to be able to do, not just for physical activities, but developing their balance like this from an early age will have positive effects on their learning as they get older, it will not only help their confidence and wellbeing but itÂ can help with things such as literacy (reading and writing).
Linda was really impressed with how quickly the children became absorbed in their play and how busy they all were, it was really noticeable how the children were playing cooperatively with each other not only alongside, and the chatter between children was lovely. We had lots of questions and comments, and lots of examples of children being imaginative.
I was so proud of our children this morning, as always.
