The Little Bumbles have been exploring in all weathers!
We have been splashing in puddles, making glitter rain, cooking mud pies and transporting water! In the sunshine we have been investigating shadows, planting and growing, playing hopscotch and talking about the beach!
Experiencing different types of weather gives us the opportunity to talk about why we need waterproofs and wellies to keep us dry and sun cream and sun hats to protect us from the sun and heat. We encourage the children to be as independent as possible when getting ready for the garden, this helps to develop self care skills.
We have lots of new and exciting equipment in the garden, we’ve had space hopper races, practiced our balancing on the wobble boards, used the new road signs to support our imaginative play and in the mud kitchen been cooking up a storm using real vegetables and herbs!
