With our two gazebos to keep us in the shade the children enjoyed spending lots of time in the garden.
We learnt about keeping safe as part of ‘Safety Week’ which became ‘Safety Fortnight ‘ as the children were enjoying the topic so much.
Although parents and carerers are welcome to play in the setting at any time Fathers, Uncles and Grandfathers are specially invited to visit near Father’s Day. Several joined us and enjoyed spending time with their child and their friends and learning what goes on in the setting.
We were visited by two excellent students as part of their work experience. The children loved playing with them and kept them on the go.
We used Holidays and Travel as our activity focus in July making our own passports, using objects to make patterns in sand, tried foot painting, practised our cutting skills cutting out pictures of clothes to glue in card suitcases and made our own post cards .
One Friday we had a beach party . Donkey rides (Well ok, rocking horse rides pulled by a kind lady) , face painting, sand, paddling pools, blow up palm trees and sea gulls, hook a duck, hot dogs and ice creams all made for a very pleasant morning.
Finally it was time to say farewell to those children moving on to ‘Big School’. They all enjoyed their party at Jungle Jacks as did the staff. It was hard to say good bye when it was time to go. We wish them all well for this new stage in their lives and thank you for all the kind words and gifts.
The new term starts on Monday 6th of September.
