Welcome to Fairyland!

Today we had our Fairyland open morning. The turn out was excellent and we would like to thank everyone for coming. The children enjoyed singing their song and showing family and friends all the hard work that they have been completing over the past few months. They also enjoyed working at all the tasks that were set up and sharing these with others.

The Secret Collection

Today we were very lucky to go on a trip to The Secret Collection in Paisley. We were so excited getting buzzed in through the big doors and taken down all the stairs to see a range of artefacts that are being looked after during the Paisley Museum refurbishment. We were joined by Adventure Ted who showed us his favourite animal and painting in the collection. It was a very interesting day.

We saw an old car that was originally made in Linwood.

The artist used a brush like this. – Rachel
