Good morning everyone,
Another beautiful day on the horizon - don't waste it! My carrot tops are looking quite sorry for themselves and not progressing well. The ones in the water are dead and the ones in the compost are starting to decompose. I think I will try again with newer carrots! I wonder if anyone has actually had a good display? Mr Woolly has put up a new lego challenge which looks quite good - make a lego monster or alien. Send a photo to him if you do one. I went to school yesterday and saw all the teachers together for the first time in 10 weeks. It was all quite different but we started off the day with Joe Wicks together and felt very hot and happy after it. Everyone got to work organising their classrooms and Mr Woolly has drawn lots of little feet in circles around the school so we can all safely stay 2m apart. The classroom is now nice and clean and reorganised - not much in it now apart from a few tables and chairs so is quite different from when we left it in March. Have fun in the sun over the next few days and stay safe.
Art and crafts will be a popular way to keep kids busy. To mix things up, put the pencils and crayons to one side and look for natural art materials instead. Collect fallen leaves, petals and sticks and use them to make a picture or sculpture. Please make sure you don't pick wildflowers, however, as they are important for wildlife and some are protected by law.
You could even use the objects as 'stampers' or paintbrushes - dipping them in paint and rolling, brushing or stamping them on paper to create interesting patterns and effects.
