This Week – We have had an Easter theme this week in OOSC. The children made colourful Easter baskets, they made rabbit faces from egg cartons and made chocolate and cornflake nests. We also held a colouring competition – congratulations to our winners Poppy C, Isabel, and Ruairi, please see their entries below! The KS2 challenge this week was to make a moon lander and we used chocolate eggs as our test astronauts. Some of our KS1 children also joined in and successfully made one. During the week we have spent lots of time outside in the garden enjoying the lovely weather.
Next Term – After the Easter Holidays we will be undertaking activities chosen by the children; to include vegetable printing, an explorer’s theme, and games.
