The possibilities of baskets

So, while still on holiday, I found a shop that sold wicker baskets in all shapes and sizes. The ideas that flowed of what to put in them was rather extraordinary. A selection of sticks in a variety of lengths would have been a wonderful numeracy experience for sorting.

Perhaps you could add 3 bowls, 3 spoons and 3 bears ears and have a story basket to promote literacy through the story of Goldilocks and the 3 bears.

The possibilities of baskets are endless.


So, my setting is all year round (no school holidays for me) and I’m currently on holiday. Now is it just me or do we practitioners never entirely switch off. I went for a woodland walk yesterday and I kept taking mental notes about outdoor learning activities I could do with my children.

Don’t tell my partner!
