Tree Planting

The children are really noticing the changing seasons – the buds, the leaves appearing. They planted some ‘baby trees’ too. They also noticed that they had shadows as it was so sunny – but that the big puddle had dried up! All these things offer so many rich, real learning experiences.

One child when asked where the puddle had gone said ‘a worm had sucked it up’, another child suggested they needed to dig to find it.

Its amazing how children have these theories about how the world works – look out for those questions and don’t feel you need to correct their current understanding – just offer them ways to test their theories out.
