As the hot week became cooler, the babies noticed the wind blowing the windmills in the garden. We looked at the leaves on the trees moving in the bresse, and the clouds being blown across the sky. The teachers demonsstrated how to blow the windmills to make them spin. All the children huffed and puffed and were pleased to see the effect this had.
We then used our bodies to spin around until we were all dizzy. The children were also given ribbons which they swirled in the air as they moved. Continuing the 'round and round' theme we encouraged the babies to make spiral marks in the sand tray using their fingers and sticks from the garden.
