Construction

We design and create all sorts of models in the construction area. Recently we have been making enclosures for animals and ourselves!

As we play we use measuring skills.

We work with others and develop our problem solving skills.

We develop our mark making skills as we plan what we are going to construct. 

 

Snack time

We are all involved in planning and preparing our snacks. We are supported to make healthy choices and we have fresh fruit and vegetables each day.

 We set the table and prepare the food and drinks.

Last week we made clootie dumpling  for snack as part of our Burns celebrations.

Today we made our own salad sandwiches. We put spread on our bread and chose our salad filling.

 

 

 

Roads, runways, routes and ramps

In the construction area we have been working together to develop the area. We used small construction resources to build vehicles and used the large blocks to create roads and ramps.  We added a runway for aeroplanes and have created more roads using tape.  As we play, we are exploring forces using ramps and gutters to create slopes and we are learning about direction using arrows.

The world of work- young builders

We were building a house using the large blocks . We used tools and took on the roles of the different people needed to build a house. We had to plan and work together and we had to take risks as we climbed up to construct the roof.

We even decided to build a shop for the workers to go to when they had a break!

Glenwood Castle

We wanted to change our role play area into something else. We shared our ideas and voted to choose a castle. We decided we needed turrets, a drawbridge and thrones for the King and Queen. We added costumes and made crowns.

We made turrets for the castle


We decorated the turrets to look like old stone.
We made a working drawbridge using pulleys to lift it up.
