Friday Fever!

πŸŒ³πŸŒ²πŸŒ³πŸŒ²πŸ’šWooHoo! It’s Friday! Happy half term to everyone whether you are in OR out of school it’s lovely to have (hopefully πŸ˜‰) a slower change of pace for a week πŸ˜ŠπŸŒ³πŸŒ²πŸŒ³πŸ’š

🌳🌲🌳IT’S been a busy week of playing; from camouflage hide and seek, mud pie making, bee 🐝 and bug 🐜 πŸ› πŸ•· activity possibilities BOTH in and out of the classroom, digging and planting, mini bug hunts, water play and a lovely chance to soak up some sunshine 🌞🌳🌲🌳

🌲🌳🌲EARLIER in the week I watched the UpStart Scotland β€œPlay is the Way” webinar focusing on inclusivity and diversity which was REALLY thought provoking – how politics defines childhood through policies, how we need to respond to children in ways which empower them and recognising the balance or imbalance between holistic practice versus business/ data driven practices. Worth a look and linked again to β€˜Forest School and Nature Pedagogy’ (Jon Cree & Marina Robb) by reference to Sue Palmer and Upstart and overuse of screens by our children and the impact of this (Toxic Childhood).πŸŒ³πŸŒ²πŸŒ³πŸ’š

🌳🌲If you can’t find the links let me know and I’ll direct but I think it’s on YouTube now. 🌳🌲🌳
