Aeon has welcomed two new Sparks Educators this term with Veronica & Lucy joining Dora and Younduk. Lucy is Diploma qualified and Veronica is in the last year of her Early Years Teaching Degree and both have a passion for delivering positive and engaging learning opportunities for our students.
Often the best laid plans produce unexpected (but just as wonderful) results. This week saw an experience that began as knocking down blocks evolve naturally through the children’s negotiations and flow of ideas into a complex castle role-play.
The children created an intricate narrative involving faeries, knights, magic potions and lava!
The thoughtful exchanges and respectful dialogue enabled the children to weave increasingly complex and detailed stories as they collaborated in their play. All the children demonstrated a real appreciation for each other’s contributions and ideas.
