We have been getting the woodwork tools out on Tuesday and Wednesday. We have a lovely woodwork bench – but this group were board with this very quickly. They took their tools up to the “waterhole” to “work”.
“We are working really hard.”
“We are working all day.”
We have had to make some rules about what we can saw. ie Not the cubbyhouse support legs!
The creek site makes the learning more authentic for the children – and with children the more authentic the longer they stay at the task.
So now our challenge is to come up with an authentic ‘building’ project for us all to be involved in. Watch this space!
