Shadows were of interest so we got out some filters and overlays,torches and mirrors to experiment with.
So much learning about sorting materials and new vocabulary-opaque and transparent,flexible,rigid and reflective.
Fresh vegetables were added to the Cat’s Kitchen. A question was asked,”Is it real?” and so a different investigation took place.
We sorted fruit and vegetables,real and plastic and wooden. We sorted again depending on how it grew-above or below ground,on plants or trees. Then we had a poke around inside to look for seeds.
Some liked this. Some were less keen!
Sometimes the best learning happens on the spur of the moment. The brushes were intended for painting but the puddle was too inviting to miss. The Pioneers discovered that they could make wonderful arcs of water spray when the waved the brushes around. They ran in big circles trailing the brushes behind them and of course they made the biggest waves possible in a small body of water.
The addition of powder paint was amazing and the effect was spectacular. The Pioneers were slightly concerned about the mess but they were reassured that everything would be fine when it rained.
Mr Grason agreed.
