With all the rainy cold days we have had we have spent lots of time inside. This has been great for the children to follow inside interests – Dramatic play, construction, creative expression, literacy and numeracy. However we all have had a bit of cabin fever and we have spent a few days on the deck. Which is nearly outside but not quite.
Heather got the bubbles out today which the children loved, they laughed and chased the bubbles trying to pop and catch them. This started a game of falling over which the children loved especially when Heather joined them for some rough and tumble.
Children really enjoy having the opportunity to participate in energetic physical activity especially when their teacher has an excellent sense of fun. Children also have the opportunity to develop and explore social concepts, rules and understandings in social context with familiar adults and peers.
