Even though this was only a 4 day week, we packed a lot of outdoor fun in! The weather was so changeable too - one day we had lots of ice to play with & the children enjoyed finding different shapes of ice in all the various loose parts that are left outside - tyres, bilibos, red tops etc.
We had made an octopus to live up in Bear Woods & the children enjoyed chalking on the shed and fence as well as watching the workmen installing the new mobile in the main school playground. I think our guinea pigs, Tracey & Fiona, look forward to our weekly visits to Bear Woods as much as we do, as they get lots of juicy grass or dandelion leaves as a present!
The children rediscovered the joys of water & compost the week to make some squelchy mud & one boy had great fun painting the wall & mud kitchen with mud & a leafy branch.
The compost bins were introduced this week too & have, as always, proved a big success for great play. I loved that this class discovered that a Fafu Andy is just perfect for use as a lid for a compost bin!
Here's hoping we have some decent weather for the last few weeks of this school year.
