Dear Parents / Carers

COVID – If your child or a family member tests positive for COVID via an LFD or PCR, please can you let us know. Thank you.

Baking – Here are a few pictures of the children making their potato skins!
This Week –   We’ve had a lovely week outside enjoying the weather. We’ve had lots of water play, dressing up, babies, chess, ice cream shop and tea making as well as the usual football, scooters, mud kitchen and outdoor construction. Inside we’ve been playing vets, Lego, colouring, board games and the pool table.
Monday – Gardening, Forest School & Woodwork –
The children made some lovely patterns by hammering nails into wood for their Nail Art. The children also made some hedgehogs. The children helped with some garden maintenance, doing a bit of weeding and watering.
Tuesday – Science Society – Using a straw we blew bubbles into a tray of coloured bubble mixture. When there were lots of bubbles, we gently pressed a piece of paper over them. As the bubbles burst on the paper, they left coloured circular patterns.
Wednesday –– Movie Club –
In our movie club the children watched ‘Turning Red’ and enjoyed sharing the adventures of Mei Lee. The children enjoyed taking time out to relax and enjoy their popcorn.

Thursday – Craft Club – We had a go at quilling which involves rolling strips of paper and gluing them together onto card to create pictures. A lot of fun but time-consuming cutting and rolling the strips!  
Friday – Baking – This afternoon we will be making giant smartie and chocolate chip cookies!


Next Week – Here are some of our planned activities for next week in the OOSC.

Monday – Gardening, Forest School & Woodwork – We will be making small chalk paint coasters and we’ll making sure the plants are thriving in the garden.
Tuesday – Science Society – We will be investigating surface tension as we design paper water bugs.
Wednesday –– Movie Club – Next week’s film will be ‘Sing 2’ and we are looking forward to the children joining in.
Thursday – Craft Club – We will be making parrots from our own handprints.
Friday – Baking – We will be making a pasta salad and the children will have a choice of ingredients to make their own salad to bring home.

Have a lovely weekend!
Kind regards
The Playhouse Team
