Just 20 minutes into 🌟 Super Stars 🌟 today and the children were fully engaged in their play.

We encourage the children to follow their own interests and are very relaxed about them transferring resources around the play stations - as long as it’s hurting no one, it’s OK with us.

Today the water beads were very popular and the children kept going back to this again and again throughout the session. One of our little friends used them as magic potions, turning us into skeletons, frogs, dinosaurs and whatever else he could dream up! The girls enjoyed using them to fill the bottles and test tubes.

One of the boys has a very strong connecting/disconnecting schema in his play at the moment. In this clip, he can be seen working in a really determined way to attach the metal clip to the den. He also removed all the plumbing pipes and connectors from the water tray and spent a long time connecting and disconnecting these on the floor. Later in the session, he was engrossed in attaching foam shapes and ribbon to card using PVA glue then removing them - fascinating to watch him follow his own line of enquiry using an assortment of resources.
