We had lots of fun today looking at buildings from around the world such as the Eiffel Tower, The Great Wall of China and the Empire State Building. We even managed to make some of our own in the block area. We selected appropriate materials and worked together to create some fantastic buildings.
The children went on a visit this morning to see our new centre at Newford Grove. They noticed when they arrived that the front of the building looked different and they recongnised it was a different colour from the rest of the building. The children had a look at the builders working and had conversations about what they might be doing. They then did their own sketches of how the building is looking now using their observation skills. Everyone is very excited about the new build and the children were very excited to share this experience with their friends when they got back.
Back in the Family Centre the children have been constructing the new build using the wooden blocks. The children have been working together and problem solving to come up with different constructions. They have been talking about what the new build will look like inside and the different rooms that there will be.
The children then went on a hunt in the woodland area next to the new build to look for some sticks for the numeracy area in the garden and this is what they found…..
