Juliet, you are welcome. Wow, why does it sound better when you show and explain the axioms?

Ah the grass is always greener on the other side! I don't think it is especially so and I'm sure readers of both our blogs would agree.

Quick feedback:

Last Friday's session was very productive. The use of photos and props prior to going out did interest most of the class. All of them rushed out to the outside space happily taking the equipment. None ran the other way (which is an option in that the outdoor space is not directly outside the classroom).

Some of children helped build the water walls - we had two going of which one was entirely child-led and organised. The velcro was also use to lock the gate to stop anyone getting out. The child who did this was extremely proud of his handiwork.

We experimented having the water down low - and it all got knocked over and emptied within a minute. The refill went up high - just high enough for the tallest ones to be able to turn off and on which was interesting to watch them discover how to do this.

I had brought along a big, medium and small container for children to use as collecting vessels. This choice seemed to work well too.
