Building bridges for the Gingerbread Man

This week for World Book Week we have been learning about “The Gingerbread Man” story. We have included recycled resources in the block area to explore ways to build a bridge for the gingerbread man to cross over the water.

“I can make a tall bridge”

“My gingerbread man is jumping up and down”

“My gingerbread man fell in the water”

“Lets make a really big bridge”

Water Play with Tubes

Today in our outdoor area children were excited to place the tubes into the bars and pour water into them. They watched the water spouting in all different directions.  They had great fun filling the tubes and trying to collect the water as it gushed out. They used a variety of containers to fill, pour and collect water. Children practiced filling, transferring and pouring using different sized containers too.

“I can read instructions and build tubes all by myself”.
“we can build it together”

” Look at water coming through tiny holes!”.
