The children are enjoying exploring the outdoor area. They have been using the fine and gross motor skills while exploring the environment. They are using various schemas to develop their curiosity.
Rotational Schema - moving balls along the string and rotating and spinning them around. Cause and effect - placing balls in the tubes and looking to see where the ball goes Filling and emptying - using balls and water to fill the plant pots and emptying them.
As we are spending more and more time outdoors, the baby room staff have been looking at ways of improving our outdoor area. There has been lots of sweeping going on and the area is now looking inviting with lots of colourful resources for the babies to interact with. This will be on-going, watch this space for progress reports.
