Here is a glimpse into a busy week of outdoor fun:
Monday was a morning of exploring watercolours, the painting the children produced were gorgeous and some managed to get really strong colours from the paints. Then some discovered that the bowls in the mud kitchen were filled with ice - they had so much fun playing with it despite the cold!
Tuesday - tragedy struck when the tap fell off the water barrel and all the precious rain flooded away, this class really does treat water a the precious commodity it really is.
However their disappointment was short lived, as we headed off on a bus for our first off site trip of the year. We went to our partner school, Sperrinview, to play in their great new playground. It was incredible to see how much this space has developed in just one year.
Wednesday was a fun filled morning playing with the bottle babies, lego and enjoying the new pallet den I managed to cobble together. The children quickly transferred all the books & house corner 'stuff' into the space and happily moved in!
Friday was a drizzly cold day - we really had such a mix of weather in just 5 days. I enjoyed watching the children just get on with playing despite the rain & it is always great to see them begin to accept all types of weather and take it in their stride. The water barrel was fixed but empty so some were delighted to find lots of rain water in one of the red tops.
