Investigations: A time to explore, discover, solve problems and learn together.
Collaboration is an important learning power we are using during investigations; as we talk to others, observe, negotiate, plan, share, ask questions, discuss together our own ideas are challenged and new connections and understandings are formed.
Planning before play enables children to organise their thinking, resources and actions.
Some of the provocations today included:
- Designing a marble run using construction materials
- Planning and building a park in the block area.
- Pictures using coloured paper
- Fountain/statue construction using alfoil, plasticine and pop sticks.
- Stop watch and puzzles
- Research in laptops
