YFD Fun Day

Bubble Day

Please see below the photographs of the children completing some of the challenges similar to what they have all seen on our Battle of the Bubbles series. It was a scorcher but we had lots of fun!

The challenges included:
Stanley’s Mini Tea Party – we had to balance our ‘teabag beanbag’ on our heads to complete the adventure playground.
Teabag challenge – throw the ‘beanbag teabags’ into the oversized cups to score points.
Scavenger hunt – find items Stanley had lost to give back to Stanley. The cards either had challenges on or were a letter to spell a word for us to work out.
Thank you so much to our hosts for sorting the series and the challenges. We have all loved watching and playing along and look forward to hearing the winner later this week.

Magical Monday – Minibeast Crafts

This week for our Magical Monday we designed and created a minibeast craft of our choice. First the children chose a minibeast and drew their design, thinking about the different materials and resources they could use. Next they use the available materials and resources to create their minibeast. Take a look at the amazing creations below:

Magical Monday – Spider Puppets

For this week’s Magical Monday we made spider puppets!

Great British Spring Clean

Today all classes at Swallowfield took part in the Spring Clean – and of course we got involved too! The children did a fantastic job of cleaning our outdoor area.

Take a look at the pictures of the children hard at work:

Magical Monday – Worm Charming

This week we are learning all about worms! For our Magical Monday activity, we put on our welly boots and headed outside for some worm charming.

First we had to water the grass to trick the worms into thinking it was raining.

Next we jumped up and down on the grass (just like birds).

Then we looked for any worms that had been charmed to the surface.

Unfortunately, due to the very warm weather that we have had recently, we were not very successful. Perhaps you could try again at home after some wet weather and see how many worms you can find!
