Hello!! Pinettes – How are you all?

Well today should have been Sports Day at Willowbank, but we hope you are all going to take part in some of the different activities at home.

⚽🏉🏈

Collect 7 different coloured items from around your house and then place them around your garden or house  – get into teams – first team – start the clock – collect all the items and put them into rainbow order – what was your time?? Now second team – who was quickest???

DONE!!!

Can you do it again and beat your time?

⌚⏰⏱⏲

Well what have the Pine Ladies been up to in the sunshine??

Boyle has been doing lots of exercise in her garden – Mr Boyle is getting very good at taking action shots!!

Aitken has out and about and found a big but very pretty plant – name that plant??

Jardine has been helping to build a greenhouse – wonder what she will grow??

Wilson has been doing some planting and getting out on her bike – what do you think she prefers??

Gardening 🌻

Well hopefully the Postman or Post lady has been and delivered you some Sunflower seeds – it would be great if you could plant them and hopefully over the summer the will grow nice and tall.

Just something cute!

Cookery – it’s too hot lets make ice lollies!!🍭

Ice Lollies

If you don’t have lolly stick or moulds you can make them up in small plastic cups and add a plastic straw OR put your mixture into ice cube trays.

What has Willow Bear been up to? 🐻

Well Hello Pine Class – hope you are all enjoying the sunshine!

Well Heather has been on Night Shift and I haven’t  been too happy about that, because I want to go outside and enjoy the sunshine and she wants to sleep! So I  keep trying to wake her up, firstly by poking her, this seems to make her quite annoyed!!  Then I did a bit of really loud singing – she didn’t seem to enjoy this either??  So she has shut me in the other room,  and told me to practice my keyboard skills, as I have a duet to prepare for with a certain young lady in the Pine Class.

Take Care Pine Class xx

Have fun in the Sunshine Pine Class

What about making some little green frogs – because you draw around your hands on the paper or use them to make an impression with the paint –  they could be a really special present for someone.

Hello from Willow Bear

Hi Pine Class!!

How are you all?

Well I am still in Aberdeen, I was on my way back to Kilmarnock to join the rest of my Willowbank Friends at school,  but then Lockdown happen. So I am still with Heather, I think she is very happy that I am still here and keeping her company.  Heather is working at the Hospital, we have watched the TV and we do a lot of singing while Heather plays her keyboard. I like to look out of the window and see which of the neighbours are out doing their daily exercise, and report to Heather who has been getting things delivered after doing their online shopping.!!Wilson and the rest of the family FaceTime and tell us what they have been up to – have to say that isn’t that interesting!! I like reading the Willowbank Blog and enjoy when the children send in photos so I can see what my Willowbank Family are doing.

Take Care Everyone Love Willow the Bear xx

TV📺

Well this week I started watching something cool on TV called The Big Flower Fight – there is a clip below – some of you might like it, lots of lovely flowers and plants.
