Summer Activities in the Sunshine

Well the lovely weather has returned over the last few day and we hope everyone is managing to stay cool, get some fresh air and have some fun learning and playpen in the sunshine.

In school some of the children have been able to make use of the easy recipe for home made play dough that we added to YouTube earlier in the week - they have made their own play dough, used it and then stored it separately in their own labelled bags to re-use - this is the sort of thing that will become an everyday occurrence now as we try to minimise contact between children and objects. We want to encourage and facilitate learning, whilst making sure everyone is safe!

They made a really simple dough - 2 cups of salt, 1 cup of flour, some yellow food colouring and vanilla essence to make it smell nice. Everyone enjoyed pressing, rolling and playing.

Other children were able to spend some time in the sensory garden, they all did a bit of weeding and tidied the garden, then they got busy picking strawberries. They then washed and tasted them with some ice cream. There were lots of vegetables growing too and they dug up 2 potatoes!

The final photo is of some lighthouses that children made, to go with the story they had been reading - The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch - it’s amazing what you can do with a plastic cup, ribbon, a little candle and some imagination - why not try it at home?!

Wherever you are, we hope you are getting out and doing some activities - maybe you have things growing in your garden - we’d love to see some photos!
