This Week – We have had a messy painting week in OOSC, we have used lots of different materials and methods to paint with. As well as paintbrushes we have used stencils, natural materials, and pendulums to create pictures, we also used water and mud instead of paint. We have had a lot of role play with hairdressers, shops and tea shops being popular with all age groups. When the weather has allowed, we have been outside to enjoy our outdoor space and equipment.

Next Week –
Next week the children have asked if they can make an afternoon tea and make cakes for this occasion. We will enjoy playing on the field and we will also do some gardening.

Summer Term Invoices – We will start to issue invoices next week. The first monthly payment will be due on 31sdt May 2021. If you are experiencing any financial difficulties due to the pandemic or would like to discuss your invoice, please don’t hesitate to speak to Sam.
