This week, we have been looking at the concept of 'bucket filling' - when you can do something to help someone else feel good about themselves, which in turn, helps you to feel good about yourself :) We watched a video of a lady reading the story "Have you Filled a Bucket Today?". The children then came up with a range of bucket filling ideas: asking someone to play with them; helping someone when they are hurt or sad; sharing a handball or toy; complimenting someone's work; smiling at someone and generally choosing to be kind. For our STEM activity, the children were challenged to make a bucket that had a handle and could hold some love - only using paper and/or aluminium foil. We had 4 different heart shaped rocks that represented love. Most children managed to make a bucket to hold the small piece of love, and many managed to make one strong enough to carry the BIG love stone. The children look forward to these challenges each week and it is wonderful to see such independent, problem solving taking place during these sessions.
