Sand And Water


 Share

Recommended Posts

We dont always - but we do make sure that there is plenty of access wherever it is eg if it is outside and the weather is shocking we would move it back indoors.

Remember too it doesnt always have to be a big sand or water tray you use - imaginative things can be done on a small scale!

we moved our sand and water outside at the end of the last school year. they are in our canopied area so accessible in all weathers. it made it possible to have a bigger area dedicated to Expressive Arts, and to have an area for messy on a tough spot on the floor. EY Advisor seems happy with it!

we don't have sand inside because we have a wooden floor and it makes it really slippy. However i currently have water in three different forms outside and sand in two different areas outside because the children we have at present are really young and need access to sand and water all the time!!!

I wanted to know if you 'have' to have sand and water both indoors and outdoors too. I find it hard to find space for both sand and water inside at the same time, I reckon we could manage a small tray of a water activity one week and sand activity the next week. Having said that sometimes we might have a tuff tray of tractors, stones etc in place of this tray meaning we haven't managed sand or water inside that week! We have both outside like everyone else but space isn't a problem outside!

we have large sand pit outside where the kids can kick off there shoes and get right in- we also have portable sand tray which can be used in or out and the water tray , although when outside we let the children have watering cans etc and I bought some small spray bottles for £1 each and they loved spraying the sand. We have a lot of younger ones this term and they so enjoy sand and water, tomorrow we have tuff tray on floor with bulldozers, sand in tray and water so they can fill, carry, lift , mix etc

 

we have wooden floors but put carpets and heavy duty sheets down and sweep any excess or get the children to do it - risk taking :1b
