Where's Wally, Picture Hunt - 7th March 2023

Today's event was to dress up like the Where's Wally character. The children that came dressed today looked fabulous. We started our morning off with some water play as it was quite warm. Then for group time I set up the grass area with some posters of the where's Wally character and the items and people he has on his adventures. I called the group over for some instructions and to show the children who Wally looked like. The children followed me over to the grassed off area where I said to them in a very quite voice we are now going on a Wally hunt so lets get our looking glasses on and lets go see what we can find. The children were so eager, through the gate we went then Hunter said "there pointing to the first poster "Oh" look said Elya finding another one. Trying to keep up with the children was fun as Nathan called out, come Sandra there's one here picking up the binoculars poster. Tilly also loved it when she found a poster of the dog. Elliot was so funny he ran around and found plenty of them but his favourite part was taking off the blue tack I used to hold them on. Marla was shy at first but then she was running around finding as many as she could. Little Autumn was right there too following the children around till she found her own one and boy did she like that. Atem was also shy but with some encouragement he was a willing participate. Dylan Jot loved the hunt and especially when he found the binocular one coming over and saying binocular see showing the poster to me. After the hunt I sat the children down and we went through the posters one by one. Then it was time for the children to sing some songs todays favourite song was sleepy bunnies where the children lie down and pretend they are asleep then I say wake up bunnies and the children hop around. Elya wanted to keep going but boy did we go through lots of animals. Then for fun I got up suddenly and pretended to be a tiger chasing them around the yard making them squeal then it was time to stop for lunch.

EYLF Outcomes

Outcomes: 4: Children are confident and involved learners Elements: 4.1 Children develop a growth mindset and learning dispositions such as curiosity, cooperation, confidence, creativity, commitment, enthusiasm, persistence, imagination and reflexivity. The children were very curious to see what was going to happen and they were eager to join in.


This learning experience can be linked to Piaget's theories. He believes that children need to be able to see, touch, move and hear the things they are learning about.


Critical Reflection: Today I engaged the children in a hunt looking for Wally and his friends. It was a great social experience where children learned to communicate with others, work cooperatively and use their language skills as they socialise in play. Follow up: Tomorrow is Jersey day.
