Technology

The children have been using their problem solving skills to design and work together to create some architecture buildings. We have also been using our imagination with the blocks to create characters from our favourite movies. Some children have been exploring schematic play , through using the blocks to enclose items they have gathered in the Family Centre.

Architects, builders beware – check out what the Cartmill children have been up to……………..they even tidy up after themselves ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Cartmill children have created a fantastic bridge!

Well done for using the tools ย safely

Boys working together, good job

A new stormtrooper house

The boys understand the routine of the nursery and tidied up when they had finished.

 

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.ย  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!”.
