The weather has been typical for going back to school - sunny & warm! This has been perfect for allowing a whole new set of children to explore the playground. From Wednesday we started our day outdoors & after a few tantrums about wanting to be inside first by Friday all the children had no problem just going outside straight away.
The children have loved exploring the mud kitchen that we were fortunate to have built by Martin from Highway Farm Activity Centre & Adam, one of our dads last year. You can more about that here. It has been lovely to watch them using the bark chippings, leaves & pine cones to 'make' ice-cream, chocolate cake & pasta.

The class also embraced the Bottle Babies into their play with little or no prompting - they became babies in the prams, ice-cream, drinks & sauces for their cooking in the mud kitchen.
