This week we have been exploring our new ‘Cubetto’ robots. They help us to develop our storytelling, logical thinking, spatial awareness and problem solving. It was really exciting to be able to give the robot a sequence of instructions to move all over the map!
We are passionate about linking movement with marks in the Foundation Stage.
Here are some examples of our nursery children exploring meaningful marks. These opportunities feed into children’s writing in their forest school diaries.
We had a fantastic time finding out about floating and sinking, how a balloon can expand without blowing into it, finding out about the life cycle of a chick, exploring how bubbles can be created and discovering which materials are magnetic. Thank you to all the parents/carers who were able to join in the fun – if you weren’t able to join us, but would like to see more photos, please ask.
