Forest School sessions continued to be run, both with our nursery children and After School children. Whilst we always enjoy all of our outdoor sessions, we have really loved being outside so much in the sunshine! The Owlets and Wise Owls have been fishing in the stream several times recently, with some success.

Wise Owls went on their Leavers’ Trip to Smithills Farm. They went to Pets’ Cornwhere they fed the lambs and goats and held chicks and rabbits. They also went a ride in the tractor trailer.

ollowing on with our theme of People Who Help Us, the father of a member of staff is a Major in the Army and he came along to talk about his work. He showed the children his Ration Pack and his uniform and he explained the purposes of all his equipment.

Work started on our new HYGGE play area which is overlooked by the Butterfly and Ducking Rooms. This is being completed in several phases.
Janet had discussions with all the Room Co-ordinators to decide on the equipment to be ordered for the new Busy Bee, Wise Owl and Ladybird rooms. This was a very exciting task.
We had three young ladies from Rivington and Blackrod High School working with us for a week on Work Experience. They were very committed and enthusiastic young people who represented their School very well.
We took delivery of a wonderful and very large Doll’s House which is now in the Hub. The children love it but we are still trying to locate extra furniture for it.
