Rainy weather doesn't stop us from having fun in the garden. For example, we can use the pipes to build a long and exciting ramp for our cars.
The see-saw can be used for the same purpose as well...
...or we can turn it into a giant balancing scale to measure blocks in weight. Maths really is all around you! We had the opportunity to use language such as 'heavy' or 'heavier' and 'light' or 'lighter'.
And the garden is full of opportunities for amazing discoveries too. For example, this week we have spotted some mushrooms growing on a log.
And when the weather is rainy, it can be actually a lot of fun! We can colour the muddy puddles and enjoy mixing paints to make different colours! What a science!...
... or turn them into 'soapy puddles'!
We also had the chance to play music using a real 'glockenspiel': it is colourful and it makes a very special sound!
Meanwhile, inside... we are using paper, sellotape and scissors to build our own telescopes or scissors...
...or exploring new ways to create art using play-dough...
We are still having a lot of fun pretending to be ice-cream sellers, operating the till and exchanging 'money'...
... or exploring how magnets work.
Here, we are very busy trying to make watches to wear on our wrists...
...while here we are experimenting with mark-making. We have a special dice, with different kinds of marks on its 6 sides: the challenge is to roll the dice and try to draw the same kind of mark on paper, such as zigzag lines, spirals, rainbows, etc.
See you next week for more news about how our imagination is taking us higher and higher!
A little look at what we've been up to.
