"B" TIME FOR DINNER BABY!

I have no idea what Ofsted would say about this idea of feeding babies.... 




Baby doesn't seem to mind too much though! The dogs are also being very well looked after.


It is lovely to watch young children showing an understanding of their world by imitating what they see in their lives around them. Caring for dolls as though they were babies and taking dogs for a walk.  She even had a chat on an old mobile phone.

Today's play, meets the following EYFS Prime and specific areas:
  • Communication and language
  • Physical Development
  • Expressive Art and Design
  • Understanding The World

"J" ENJOYING MATHS AS HE PLAYS.


Little "J" loves cars and will play with them at every opportunity. I have to take full advantage of this interest and try and draw it in to other areas of learning. I have to observe closely to see how his interest and play is actually helping him to learn all of the things I can sometimes find hard to measure when checking his progress against the Early years outcomes.

Today was just one of those days.
While he sat checking out the buses in the box and sorting out all the cars. I saw a lot of mathematical thinking and language happening.
 He told me he had a red bus. Then 2 red buses.
 Then he had a little bus and a big bus.
 This one is bigger look! This one is smaller.
Then he looked to see if he could find another bus and if it was the same size as any of the buses he already had.
Look how many windows this bus has.... 10 windows, We counted them together. Both buses had 10 windows. That is the same!
