Splish, splosh, splash

The paddling pool has been a huge hit with not only the children but the ladies too! Using the hose like a sprinkler also went down a storm and you could probably hear the shrieks of laughter from home!

A busy week!

This week has been packed full of exciting activities and lots of transition visits but this is what we’ve been doing when the children are here…. The mud kitchen has tubs of ‘ingredients’ so the chefs can create a real masterpiece, we have been packing our suitcases ready for our holidays, using paint palettes in the garden and there has been lots of water around the play with and pour. 

Zoom to the Moon

Our astronauts were raring to go today and we had to sing Zoom to the Moon several times to ensure that they all got to explore space!

How quickly does ice melt?

It’s interesting to watch how quickly ice melts when the outside temperature is 27°c, especially when there are toys stuck in it.  The children were very eager to help the process along too.  Inside, lots more fabulous constructions and the children are getting very proficient at copying some of the diagrams on the ideas sheets.

Paddling

The sea creatures and nets were swiftly discarded in favour of paddling in the water to keep cool.  We have been singing Zoom to the Moon at singing time as part of our space themed week and the children have loved the rockets.
