What a glorious day it was for our last Stay and Play day this term!
We were all very busy painting, sanding, watering and building while the sun shone, but the highlight was most definitely building our Fire Pit at the end of the day to toast marshmallows and eating “shmores”!
Sanding, ready to build……..
”We look like scientists!” (Maximus)
Gardening and making planters……
Making fire, toasting marshmallows…..yum!….
The Fire Pit was a big hit with staff, bairns and parents. Providing children such experiences with real tools and fire allow our children to directly experience and gain knowledge about the nature these things and of open flames within a safe and controlled environment. They develop a respect for fire and the skills to keep themselves safe, which they can apply throughout their lives.
We all had a fabulous afternoon in the sunshine. Big thanks to John the Janny and all the parents who donated items and came along to help. Some even managed a sneaky marshmallow or two!
