Working Together

Today a group of our children took the bird box they had made on  their last forest school session to Williamwood High School to be painted so that the box would be suitable to be put outdoors…we want it to be weather proof!! The children also met Mr. McLean from the design and technology department.

The children put rubber around the joins in the wood to keep the water out, then they helped to paint the box. The children were very pleased with their bird house.

Some children added finishing touched to a mirror and drawer stand and they were delighted to bring it back to the family centre.

Festive Fun

Today we got started with our annual festive events – the Welly Waddle and Christmas Coffee & Craft.  The events both ran in the morning and afternoon and were well attended by family members.

The children had boundless energy as they ran, jogged and walked round the track at Williamwood High School.   Well done everyone!

Wonderful crafts and biscuit decorating were the order of the day at the Christmas Coffee & Craft.  It was lovely to see so many families coming along to do this with their child or indeed children.  Great work everyone!

Visiting our neighbours at Williamwood High School and Bonnyton House

Today has been a busy day for us as we have been out and about visiting our friends in the community and showing off our Easter Hats. The lovely ladies who work in the kitchen were very impressed with the designs on the children’s hats and were delighted to see us.

Michael’s sheep hat was a big hit!

Easter Parade

In the afternoon we walked over to see our friends at Bonnyton House.  We haven’t seen them for a little while so it was nice to catch up and show off our hats to them too.

We sang some Easter Songs, and the ladies and gentlemen were clapping their hands and singing along with us.

Christmas is for giving

We want our children to celebrate Christmas with lots of fun, wonder and awe. We also want them to learn about the traditions at Christmas and giving presents is one of them.

But first the children had to make some gifts and it was decided that tree decorations would be best.  Jillian had made salt dough decorations before so she helped the children to make the dough.

The dough was made  into shapes – trees, stars, gingerbread people and hand prints.  Then it went into the oven and baked for a couple of hours until… “it’s as hard as a rock”  said Mhairi.

Time to decorate!

We added some ribbon and a label and got ready to gift our decorations to the local community.  The children started with our neighbours in Newford Grove.

Unfortunately most of the neighbours were not at home but we left a decoration on their door handle for them to find later on.

Next we were off to visit Williamwood High School.  We sang for the ladies in the office and gifted them decorations for their big tree.

Tomorrow we will be visiting Bonnyton House and maybe the pet shop in Clarkston.
