A treat for the senses.

So now I’m based in York we decided to have a wander around the City centre. While we were walking through Deans Park, which is beside the Minster, I saw these beautiful raised beds.

I firmly believe that learning really happens when the senses are stimulated and what better than an oasis of herbs and scented plants.

I can see this sitting beautifully in our mud area.

The Big Mystery: Hint 3

This is probably the biggest hint of all, especially if you know what this beautiful place is called. Many years ago I climbed to the top and the views were spectacular.

The Big Mystery will be revealed tomorrow!

So this week it was a lovely, if chilly, walk in my village. Lots of daffodils on display.

Sorting and matching

One of my very lovely colleagues brought in a set of graded storage containers she bought from Morrisons and added them to the home corner as a maths activity. The children have to sort them into the correct size with the correct lid in order to put the final bug kid on. It’s kind of a domestic Russian Doll.

I happened to comment how awesome that was, next thing I know I come in to find a set of them in my locker. She knows me only too well!

No idea of the cost as they were a present but worth having a look in your nearest Morrisons!

CPD with a difference!

I’ve just been doing the housework and some CPD at the same time.

Don’t be too shocked, I do do the housework sometimes! However I popped on my headphones and spent and enjoyable time listening to my very lovely friend Kimberly from KSEY Consultancy talking about a variety of topics relating to her specialist subject of Hygge in the Early Years.

These podcasts are free and well worth listening to, I’m certainly taking the latest one back to my setting and pointing my team in the direction of it. Mop, bucket and duster not included!
