It was a beautiful day and because we were missing Mrs Rainey and were not able to go to the woods, we took some things to the garden to make it feel more like the woods. The children had to use their problem solving skills when making a den and putting up the hammock. The tent kept “falling over” and someone wondered, “I don’t think this is how you do it.” The children discovered what the problem was and managed to put all the poles into the tent to try and make it stand. It was tricky to get it up and one of the boys observed, “I need more people to help” but by then everyone was looking for a safe tree to hang the hammock onto. The children were a little nervous about trying the hammock as it looked “high up.” Some of the children who had not been to the woods had a problem because they were not sure what to do with it but one of the older children said, “you sit on it” and after a couple of tumbles out, the children took turns at climbing into the hammock. The children were able to support each other and said, “you need to push him” and the children began to rock each other singing “rock a bye baby sitting on a treetop.” It wasn’t quite the same as the woods without Robina the Robin and Mrs Rainey but the children were able to work together and solve the problems they came across.
