What a fantastic time our families had at the Let’s Play workshops this week. The Let’s Play programme aims to empower families in their play, discussing the power of our attachments, interactions and outdoor experiences. After all play is the highest form of learning for all ages.
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 – 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!
We had a super day on Saturday and we thank our families, friends and staff for helping to make the family fun day such a success. Thanks to your generosity we raised just over £1000 on Saturday which is tremendous. Below are some of the images captured on the day!
Today all of the children in Cart Mill enjoyed a teddy bears picnic and an outdoor bookbug session.
The toddlers participated with the older children in a huge teddy bears picnic. They enjoyed singing familiar songs from bookbug sessions and learning some new songs.
We had a great time singing with our teddy bears and enjoyed an outdoor picnic snack .
Tomorrow (Thursday)we are hosting a Bookbug Big Picnic in celebration of Bookbug Week. Families are welcome to join us at 10.30 and 2.15. Just remember to bring your teddy!
The easter bunny arrived in the toddler garden today and left colourful easter eggs for the boys and girls.
The children were so excited and had a lot of fun trying to find the eggs the bunny had hidden in the garden.
“Here is the Easter bunny”
“Look mine is in the car”
“I have a green one”
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!
Some of the children have been working hard on their Easter Hatsover the spring break. Today we went over to visit the teachers and pupils from Williamwood High School and some of the residents from Bonnyton House. Everyone loved our hats!
