Dear Parents / Carers
This Week – We have been thinking about Diwali and bonfire night this week in OOSC. We made Diya lamps in clay and salt dough and then painted them in bright colours. We used paint, chalk and coloured rice to make Rangoli patterns outside in the garden. We also used chalk, paint and Knex to make firework patterns. The children used twigs, leaves and plants to make pretend bonfires in the garden. This afternoon we will be having a bonfire in the forest area, and we will make cola and mentoes explosions.
Next Week – Next week we will be having a Moroccan theme. We will be having a spice and smell activity and we will be making mint tea.
Zoolab – On Wednesday we will be having a visit from Zoolab and they’ll be bringing lots of interesting and exotic animals.
Nearly New Sale – Don’t forget to contact Rachel Higginbotham or Alexa Hall if you are interested in their Nearly New Sale being held on 13th November.
Firework Safety – With many organised Firework displays cancelled again this year, many families will be going it alone at home. Do you know how to buy fireworks safely and avoid unlicensed sellers? Do you know what precautions to take to avoid a serious accident? What would you do if the worst happened? If you would like any help or guidance, please visit the Child Accident Prevention Trust website: Firework Safety | Home | Child Accident Prevention Trust (capt.org.uk)
Have a lovely weekend and stay safe!
