Chickadees, Jan 12
There was a lot going on in Chickadees today. We introduced a game to help the children understand about the ecosystem on the bluff. Today they chose an animal they wanted to be and they had to find food to stay alive and avoid the predators (Miss Jessie and Miss Dawn) that wanted to eat them. Over the next few weeks we'll keep playing and introduce more parts of the ecosystem to show how everything is connected and dependent on all the parts working.
In free-play we saw children playing with different friends that they have not played with so much before. Some new activities like a tyre swing and hammering coloured ice blocks drawing the children together. We decorated the forest with the frozen bird feeders we made last week and will look next time to see if they have been eaten.
