Well did we find a Pot of Gold?
Aitken saw a lovely Rainbow at the weekend – have any of you spotted a rainbow?

The Story of the Leprechaun
And some music
The Rainbow Song
Well it isn’t just the end of the Rainbow it is the end if the School year – and a different end to the School Year it has been!!!
We have put in some Rainbow ideas for you to do this week if you want – but also included some other websites that might be appropriate if you are looking for some activities inspiration over the holidays OR just incase there is some wet weather!!!
What have the Pine Ladies been up to with Colour???
Jardine looked lovely in Yellow with her wee blue Gnome.
Aitken was celebrating British Flower Week , with some beautiful flowers.
Boyle has made her own pretty rainbow with lovely scarfs.
And Wilson found Heather’s Rainbow Bears up the loft!!!
Lets make some colourful food for the last week – Boyle has suggested a lovely layered salad?
Layer Pasta Salad
Or we could have some colourful fruit skewers!
Rainbow Fruit Skewers
We have made colourful cupcakes in class and really enjoyed it!
Ice lollies are another good idea and very easy to make – or you can make more complicated ones if you get adventurous!!
The Rainbow Ice Lollies link is below – Eats Amazing has some great ideas for ice lollies and other tasty food and treats – have a wee look and see if you can find some things you would like to make.

A few different ideas for this week and into the holidays – Remember take some photos of anything you do – we would love to see your photos after the holidays.
We love making painted handprints in the Pine Room so this is a lovely idea and you could turn it into a beautiful gift.
The Kids Craft Room have lots of different lovely activities if you are looking for some other activities too!
Rainbow Hand Prints
Another website that you might like to have a look at for some recipes and craft ideas is Mother Could, linked below. I will warn you some of her activities are pretty messy!!!
The other thing you could do it put up a new Rainbow in your window – have a look on the internet for some different ideas!
Boyle found these beautiful earrings on the Silver Fox Jewellery
And thought they could inspire some of you to make some jewellery – using things, such as pieces of wool, beads and threads to make to different jewellery. Below are a couple of websites with instructions to help you create something special.
Jewellery for Kids
Or what about Knitting – you could help someone to pick the pattern and the colours and perhaps even have a wee go!! Wilson has been knitting a rainbow cushion for Heather and Willow the Bear …it is nearly finished!!
Numeracy and Colour Sorting
In class we enjoy colour sorting and counting – so below are a few different ideas you can try at home and the links to the websites.
Animals and Nature
We have looked at some animals that are blue, green …even purple BUT some animals are multi coloured – check out the link below and see some of the Natural History Museums most colourful creatures – you will be amazed!!! Have a look on the internet as well and see if you can find anymore??
How does a Rainbow happen?
Dr. Binocs is going to explain that all to you! It is Amazing!!!!
Willow the Bear
Well Pine Class, myself and Heather are back on good term because the ASDA shopping arrived and guess what was in it…….CUSTARD CREAMS!!!! We did have a disaster as the washing machine broke and there was water all over the floor, Heather was trying to stop the water and put down towels – she seemed to be quite cross, but I thought it was really funny!!! On Friday I got a SURPRISE, Heather has bought me a kitten to keep me company when she is at work, she is called Ada, I am so HAPPY!!! We can watch the delivery men delivering the online shopping to the neighbours, and watch reality TV together and travel to ASDA in Heather’s back pack – oh seemingly that’s not allowed!!!! Well Pine Class this is my last blog post until after the holidays, by then I will have lots to report!!
Love and Bear Hugs
P.S. Remember if you make Blueberry Muffins or have any spare Custard Creams please post them to me!!

Well it is time for Dorothy to click her red shoes together and head home!
There is no place like home
We hope that you enjoyed The Wizard of Oz and all the Colours of the Rainbow!
Well as Willow said this is the last blog and we will see you all after the summer at school – apart from one special Lady that is going to retire after 24years of working at Witch Hill and Willowbank!!!
JARDINE we are all very sad you are retiring and we won’t get to see you everyday at work. We are going to miss you so much – but hope you will come and visit as often!!
