Our last class for the Thursday group this term. Unfortunately we only had two members – being the end of the school term, kids have started early holidays and have school trips, etc – but we had fun anyway, exploring our last element, water.
Starting with an ice-cream…
We scooted down to the river, and I read them A.A.Milne’s excerpt from ‘The House At Pooh Corner’, about the game ‘pooh sticks’, and how to play it.
And then of course, we played it..
Having watched the flow of the river take our sticks under the bridge, we went on to make mini rafts…
..which we then floated on the river, and raced them down the river, using the flow of the water….
And Maya just couldn’t help but dance in the river afterwards! 😄
