On Mondays we go into the school grounds, whatever the weather! The children learn all about nature and the seasons, as well as how to keep safe when crossing the road (the drive), and how to take risks as they climb and explore.
Team Muddy Monday! Morning...
We drew maps to show us how to get to camp...then followed them!
Is this the way?
We played in the dens which the older children had built.
There’s still lots of love for the double swing...
Swing and sing
We love having snack at camp. Especially in the sunshine!
Sharing a swing
The longer seat gives the opportunity for more than one child. Tricky to balance on-great for developing those tummy muscles!
Swinging with a friend
Sharing a swing...part 2!
Pots and Pans Orchestra
We used pots, pans and sticks to make loud and quiet sounds. The children had to watch the conductor!
Fun in the Sun 🌞
We took the train track to make tracks outdoors in the grass. We added natural resources to play dough to make patterns and pictures 🌱🌼
As always, we enjoyed stick play.
Play dough fun
Peek a boo!
In the den
The children enjoyed finding different ways of climbing onto the wall. Some used branches, or a bench. Lots of problem solving and helping each other. Getting down was tricky!
We made it!
A helping hand.
The children found a new swing which was tricky to get on! They helped each other, holding the swing for friends to have a go.
Whilst doing this, the children were problem solving, assessing and taking risks, and working together. A simple but very effective learning experience!
Hold it steady...
Jumping in muddy puddles!
Young children tend to be fascinated with water and puddles.
This week we found some brilliant puddles! We jumped, splashed, dropped things in, mixed, poked and built a bridge.

Poking and mixing.
Loving the mud.
Dropping in stones.
Building a bridge.
The children fetched sticks, pebbles, grass, flowers, rocks and mud to drop into the water.
This week we used sticks to show how many children-2 tens and 7 more
We all planted a bean, and talked about what it will need to grow.
We loved painting on trees with muddy water. Great for developing our shoulder muscles!
And we generally enjoyed hanging around, building, and getting muddy!
Easter fun 🐣
We enjoyed searching for Easter chocolate lollies...and eating them!
Chocolate in the sunshine 🌞
We like the Easter bunny!
We set up camp this week, and stayed for Welcome Time, snack, and story time.
