You won't believe what we've found in our outdoor area! 

The children rushed outside after the teachers mentioned they'd seen some unusual objects. They were shocked to find an egg, a toolbox with an unknown machine and a giant's sock and tie. After finding these objects, the children wanted to investigate them further, so we created 3 projects and each child voted for the one they'd like to be part of. These projects have since become the stimulus for our classroom provision and topic work. 

The choice of these 3 projects have been based on children's interests which were observed in their play. We are looking forward to allowing them lead the learning through their engagement and also find out why the objects were left in our outdoor area!
