Playhouse Activities This Week – This week we have been practicing blending and rhyming. We’ve been have had lots of running races and spoon races. The chicks have arrived and the children have been able to watch them crack out of their shells. You are more than welcome to pop in and see them. The children will be able to handle them next week. We’ve also held our second Stay & Play session. Today we have held a Helpston World Cup to celebrate the Ladies World up. Flags and banners have been made in the forest school.

Playhouse Activities Next Session – Next week we are going to have lots of water play due to the hot weather. Please can you make sure your child has a change of clothes. Thank you. We will be caring for the chicks and we’ll have lots of ‘chick’ craft. We’ll have running races and tennis too.
