Mud Sports Day

MUD DAY !!!!!!!

Today we had a vision and it came to life. Our children explored their senses through jelly, mud, water, bubbles, gloop, flour and grass. The children were allowed to get as muddy as possible and to share this experience with the full Cart Mill family.

Children within this developmental stage it is crucial to engage in outdoor experience, thus experience allowed children to explore the world around them in a fun and unfamiliar way. The children also develop their social skills, risk taking, gross motor skill and physical ability through this experience. This is an great example of “learning through play “.

This was not only for the children but also for the staff. This type of experience is known to provide joy and happiness if we let it and today at Cart Mill we did just that. Laughter filled the air and fun was had by all.

Please keep an an eye on the board in the hall way for more mud day pictures. Thank you to everybody who helped to make this work, especially you the parents, this was a huge success.

Mud Sports Day

Mud Sports Day – Wednesday 26th June

We are embracing “Go Wild” month and having a non-traditional sports day this year – a mud sports day!  It’s going to be messy but loads of fun.

We ask that your child wears old clothes that day and brings a plastic bag with a clean set of clothes, underwear and a towel in it.  If your child does not want to take part they do not need to so please just let us know if this is the case.

This video of children in Australia having fun in the mud gave us the idea https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLf0hEl0R7c  along with the forest school group who had a very muddy day last year.

Let the mud flow!

Easter Egg Hunt

Look at all the eggs!
I found one.
The Easter Bunny has been so busy.
I’ve found a golden egg.
I hope the doggies don’t eat our eggs.
We found them!

What a surprise we had this morning when we looked over the garden fence, the Easter Bunny had left some yummy chocolate treats hiding in the grass. We were all very excited to go out in the sunshine and hunt for our eggs. Everybody was so lucky as they all managed to find an egg. Now it’s time to enjoy our holiday weekend and who knows, maybe some more chocolate eggs will be delivered!
