Week of June 13th 2016

We have been lucky to be able to be outside so much recently and this week was also spent in the garden.

We have made sticky pictures and flown helicopters to see birds. We made shapes with  the playdough and discovered it goes really squidgy when we leave it out in the garden.

We remembered to turn  the tap off on the water butt and we collected lots and lots of water so that we were able to pour it into our pots and pans and watering cans and make lots of special potions, soups and cups of tea.

We were busy inside and outside today – we did some foot painting – that was great fun. The paint was cold and squishy on our feet and we had to be careful not to slip because the paint made our feet slide really easily.

We had pink and blue paint and when we jumped around it mixed up and made purple.

Outside we were putting the ball down the long pipe – we put a pan at the end and the ball bounced on it and made it ping!

We spent another glorious day in the playgroup garden – we made new play dough – purple like Jane and Pam’s t-shirts. We made shapes with it and pressed it onto the wood and stones to see what patterns it made. We thought it would make good plum juice too!

We have some new diggers in our garden – we used them to dig up the stones and move them around.


There was a spider in one of our cars – it was huge ad very tickly on our hands.

We been so lucky to be outside in the garden both sessions this week, and, in glorious sunshine. We had a visit from the school children on Tuesday, part of the transition arrangements we have with Kippen Primary school to aid the transition from playgroup and nursery to school.

We were also very busy making our Olympic t-shirts for the Street Fayre. We used 5 different colours and stamped circles on to our t-shirts. The circles all join together because thats what all the countries do during the Olympics – join together to do different sports.
