Love, Live and Learn
From observing the children's interest in building structures both inside and out, alongside watching their friendships form in the process, I searched for an appropraite text to share with the class.
What We'll Build, is a beautiful book which explores relationships, the present and future, feelings the children may wish to explore further; as well as celebating the endless potential each child holds.
Please share the following videos with your child, which explore the author and his reasons for writing his beautiful book.
After dismantling the nativity scene and leaving blocks behind in an empty space, the children instantly began to play, making up their own story. The blocks were arranged into beds of different sizes due to the limited amount of blocks. When asked if they would extra props they asked for three bears and our new role area was decided upon.
Please listen to the Golilocks and the Threee Bears story at home and ask them about playing in this area.
