Outdoor play

down by the river
out in the woods
out in all weather
safety is paramount
space to roam
mud – we love mud
whoops to much mud!
watching the water and finding new life
looking for shapes and asking questions
watching the birds
watching nature blossom

useful resources

bug hunt
woods hunt visit
lots to think about with our little people
great ideas
for rainy days
rest is as important as learning – its the time children make sense of all the information they have taken in that day – week

Dinosaur hunting

we found them
great tracker dog we found dinosaurs
the children enjoyed the adventure as well
we discovered hidden treasures
very exciting they look great all over grown
unusual wildlife ….. it is real Herron
