How many ways can you move?

The environment outdoors at Windsor provides the ideal place to explore movement – whether that is moving yourself or moving objects. It also provides rich opportunities for the children to help each other to achieve the ‘I can do it’ moments

Ice Investigation

Finding ice in the garden motivated the children to explore how ice is made and how it can be changed – it just had to be felt, tasted and explored. Interestingly the children were keen to see how it changed when it was held under running cold water and amazed as it melted in two

Mixing and Making

The children have been very busy in the mud kitchen – take a look at how they mix, stir, combine, work together, use their imagination, share and laugh!

Mud play is full of rich, real opportunities that are essential for young children’s physical, social, emotional and communication development

 

Windy Day at Windsor

The children loved being out in the wind – they used sticks to make kites – but found out the sticks made them too heavy to fly so they took the sticks out and the kites flew!

They also collected sticks for the fire – they measured them against their fingers to make sure they were the right size to make the fire.

New Group of Explorers

The latest outdoor explorer group went out for their first session. The children loved being out and about enjoying the rain. Take a look at the photos

Out and About

The children have been out and about this week. They went on a long walk down the lane noticing the changes that are happening as we move into spring – at last the daffodils we have been watching are flowering

Tree Planting

We have some baby trees – called saplings donated by The Forest of Mercia. As the weather was warmer we have planted them today.

We noticed that the wind had blown down quite a few sticks from the trees so we carried them very carefully – by dragging them behind us back to camp. We used them to make a fire so we could warm some milk for hot chocolate.

We noticed on the way that our bird feeders were empty – the birds must have been very hungry indeed!
