We loved flying a kite on a windy day so we decided to make our own! We used the internet to research and tried different materials. We liked using the recycled carrier bag.
We are taking part in RSPB’ Big Birdwatch. https://www.rspb.org.uk/get-involved/activities/birdwatch/
We prepared a birdhide to allow us to watch the birds without being seen. We have been reading books to help us identify the birds which visit our garden. We spotted a big magpie from the playroom window.
Our regular Woodland Adventure sessions for this term have begun. Here are just a few of the things that we have been doing…
If you would like to come and join us on one of our adventures, then please add your name to the list on the noticeboard.
Hide, Find and Rehide
We have been busy decorating stones to hide in our local parks for our families within Glenwood and the community, to enjoy finding, rehiding and even decorating our own stones to hide.
This is a great way to get active and creative whilst spending quality time with family and friends without spending any money.
By the end of the week, we aim to have stones hidden in Eastwood Park and Rouken Glen Park. Please feel free to take your child out on a ‘stone hunt’ and even add to our collection by designing your own special stone. If you find a stone, you will be able to tell if it is one of ours as it has our twitter address on it @GlenwoodFC. Once you’ve found the stone you can take a photo, rehide it or hide one of your own, then post to twitter.
We hope you enjoy this fun experience with your children.
What you need
- A stone (any size)
- Varnish (This could be clear nail varnish)
Today we noticed that we had no charcoal left to draw with in the garden, so we decided to make some more.
Once we had the fire alight, we cut some sticks to put in the tin. Then we put the tin in the hot fire and waited…
… and watched the smoke come out of the hole…
… and waited some more!
Finally our charcoal is ready to use.
Please get involved by having a go at some of the science challenges in the leaflet we are sending home…
Find a recipe for playdough here. You could look up your own recipe as well!
Some of the children started off the week hunting for minibeasts in Toadstool Tales…
The sun was shining as we set off on our first walks this morning and we even spotted a semi-circle shaped moon in the sky! Our walks have different maths challenges…
Patterns can be found in all sorts of places…
Maths Week Scotland is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits, joy and beauty of maths.
Each group will be going on a walk in the local community to investigate one area of maths together and we would like parents and carers to join us!
Please sign up with your child’s key worker if you can join us – the group timetable is here : Maths Week Walks
Watch out for more Maths Week Challenges to come!
Our weekly Woodland Adventures have begun! We were delighted to be joined by some parents last Friday despite the rain – here are a few photos to show you what we got up to.
