Wednesday 20th May
I hope you’ve been having a good week and are enjoying the warm weather. We went on a long walk yesterday and came across a rainbow fun trail that some children had chalked onto the path outside their house and along their road. They had drawn a hopscotch, wiggly lines to follow and large spots to jump from one to the other. It was really fun and a nice surprise for us. If you have some chalks perhaps you could create a fun and colourful ‘chalk fun course’ for people to enjoy as they pass your house.
Today’s theme for Wednesday is: Workout Wednesday
Create a workout, be the instructor and get your family fit! Make it as fun and enjoyable as possible - we'd love to see some photos!
Have a great day!
Miss Barrett and Mrs Ashby
