Rapid Covid-19 Home Testing Kits – These kits are now available to all households with school-age children. Please see the attached flyer for more information on how to obtain the kits.

This Week – We have had a STEM theme in OOSC with various activities taking place throughout this week. We have mixed colours to see what happens when two colours merge and we made crawling rainbow patterns using pens and water. We also made rain clouds in jars; we blew coloured bubbles in the jars which we then used to create interesting pictures. Our older children were challenged to make balloon powered cars. We have also had plenty of other games and activities through the week; the magnetic darts and Uno continue to be popular with KS2. Our KS1 children enjoyed playing with the puppet show. They also used inks and stampers to make some fantastic pictures.

Next Week – Next week we will be starting our Easter activities and we’ll be having lots of fun!!
