Stay and Play is on from tomorrow, Monday 28th January and will last all week. We have planned learning sessions for you to join so that you can experience some of the learning that the children experience daily in our centre. The sessions will take place at 9.15am and 1.15pm and are as follows:
Monday – Cooking on the fire with Val & Jaweria
Tuesday – Literacy & Numeracy with Helen & Yasmin
Wednesday – Bookbug with Zoe – AM Toddlers Playroom & PM Children’s Playroom
Thursday – Baking with Stephanie MacRitchie
Friday – Forest School with Stephanie MacPherson & Sharon McKenna – PM Session for adults 13.15 – 15.15
You are welcome to pop in and play anytime this week from 8am to 6pm.
This week we had very confident children who reached the height of their choosing using rope and their problem solving skills. The rope was then used to create a swing for everyone to enjoy.
Others continued to explore the forest.
On Wednesday and Thursday sessions in the forest were cancelled due to the weather and so we used the green area behind the centre.
Children explored the area, investigating the ice with magnifying glasses. Some found large muddy puddles and encouraged others to jump in. Children used the ropes and cooperated with each other so that they got to the top of the hill. They also played a game of tug of war.
It’s been a really Scottish week with special Scottish music , Scottish food, Scots stories and a Scottish dancer.
And even Scottish play dough – we made tartan!
A famous Scot turned up too!
We wish all of our families a very happy Burns Night this weekend!
