Muddy woods

Posted by on March 26, 2015

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 it 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.

    Just love keeping up to date with all the amazing activities that the kids get up to at school and the children’s centre. It just goes to show how important it is to have good staff and amazing school facilities. A simple outdoor area had been transformed into what can only be described as a magical wonderland fit for any child’s imaginative play.
    Addison regularly speaks about going into the woods with a massive smile on his face as he tries to lure me in on the way home from nursery….I think he’d live in the woods if he could!
    I’m so proud of how far he has come along, he is learning new things everyday and always talks about nursery in such a positive way and can’t wait to go every morning. All this positivity has stemmed from the amazing staff who I can’t praise enough.
    Big thumbs up and thank you to you all, and keep up the hard work!!

      Thank you 🙂 Addison is a little star, he is so inquisitive and eager to learn, he is a pleasure to spend time with. I could chat with him all day long, he always has something new to say. He is just full of fun and join, and we were all commenting on how polite he is. Well done Addison, and Mum and Dad!
