We are keeping ourselves busy, healthy and fit both indoors and outdoors.
In the morning we are working out with Joe Wicks PE sessions (really a chance for my 3 children to laugh at me trying to get fit)
Getting out daily for a walk or bike ride, using the trampoline or shooting some Hoops with the basketball.
Jamie and I cut the grass yesterday another little work out!
In the nursery the children enjoy ‘Jump Start Johnny’, it’s available on you tube and are doing a work out for children and parents everyday.
We have birthday celebrations in our house today .
We decided to make Marc some very special birthday cards.
Looking forward to some cake later 🍰
Please stay at home and stay safe!
It has never been more important to be aware and do things to help our mental health and the mental health of our families. These posters are from @BELIEVEPHQ and have tips on how to nourish our children’s mental health and how to stay mentally fit.
We know how important it is to look after our physical and mental health. When we are stuck indoors, it is even more important! There are many ways we can make the best of it, and some involve having fun! Here are a few ideas to get started.

The children were being creative with the chalks outside and enjoyed making a giant rainbow.
We were singing about all the colours of the Rainbow and rainbows are a ray of hope.
“it looks like a smile”
We are always smiling in Cart Mill and are sending a happy smile to all our wonderful children and their families.
Take care everyone and please stay safe.
The children have been learning about germs and why it’s important to wash their hands properly.
“all the germs are gone”
The children are washing the visible germs on the gloves off with warm soapy water.
Exciting times in the Cart Mill garden this week with the arrival of our new greenhouse. Michelle, Fiona and Val have been working to build this beautiful new addition to our outdoor space. Having somewhere to start our seedlings grow will provide so many wonderful experiences for the children at Cart Mill. Not only will it help explain the wonders of nature and life cycles, it will encourage children to care for and nurture their very own plants.
We have been eagerly waiting for our greenhouse for a few weeks and now the hard work begins. The shelves are up, the seed trays are ready. So, what will we plant first?
It was positively springlike in the forest today. There were birds twittering in the trees and horses galloping in the field while the children explored in the sun. We found new trees to climb, developing our gross motor skills as well as developing resilience – “can we be brave and go higher?”
Snack was spent sitting in the sun, socialising with our friends and talking about what else we would like to do at the forest. We have been really lucky with the weather so far, long may it continue.
Today the children have been making delicious bird feeders to encourage the birds to visit us in the nursery garden.
What a great feeling to get back out into the forest today, especially as the sun was shining. After all the rain, the forest was alive with new growth.
The children spent the morning exploring our new site and the verdict is – “it’s really good” and “I want to live here!”. Now, where can we pitch the tents?
