Indoor Cubby Building!

Julia & Anna share with us why the Year 1/2 Room was BUZZING! 

What a buzz we had in class today. Our Wild Space session was cancelled due to weather warnings but that didn’t phase the children they all took it in their stride and were very understanding.

Throughout the week we had noticed how much the children had been enjoying building cubbies. So we supplied lots of blankets and sheets from home with the intention to have a bucket filling session. This was planned for our ‘Bucket Filling Friday’ afternoon after Wild Space, our goal was to build a giant cubby together as a group.

There was no way we could make the children wait until the afternoon so we gave them the blankets after morning meeting and within 5 minutes several cubbies were built. It didn’t take long before the children joined all the cubbies together and were working like the dream team we know they are! If the cubby would begin to break they would shout “Everybody out” or “Its breaking, Evacuate” and before you know it all of the children would be out of the cubby and up fixing it, like little ants building a nest!! Tables were being shifted, chairs were being stacked and anything that we could find to be a weight became one. We even went down to EC to see if they had any pegs we could borrow to assist our building.

We were so excited at out creation that we invited the Rainmakers (Year 1/2) to do an open classroom between morning tea and lunch time to come and play in it with us.

“The shrewd guess, the fertile hypothesis, the courageous leap to a tentative conclusion - these are the most valuable coins of the thinker at work. But in most schools guessing is heavily penalized and is associated somehow with laziness.”
