Day two of summer

It’s day two of summer, they are both hyper, they are both arguing with each other, Bell is being a little madam and demanding everything and anything.

 

We had to get out of the house try and burn some energy of.

We popped to Tesco and then to the Nature Trail for a run around.

The nature trail is lovely full of birds, goats, wallaby’s , pigs, ducks and chickens.

There are little paths and down most of the paths there are little houses made from natural materials.

There are also lots of ideas to encourage insects into your garden. Such as building Bug hotels and plants to attract certain bugs.

We can feed the fish, ducks and chickens for 20p each. Which I divide food mix between Bear and Bell.

The entry price isn’t too bad either, its one of the cheapest morning or afternoon out for a family and even cheaper if you buy the annual pass which I have done.

Dear Bear … (End of term)

How is it the end of term already?

This year has flown by. This time last year we were saying goodbye to your amazing pre-school teachers ready to spend summer together before  you started on your Reception class adventure.

You have graduated from Reception and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and you are now ready for some serious but fun learning, in your next class.

Your Reception Class adventure is now over the next school chapter will be opening after the summer holiday’s. 6 whole weeks of not dashing about and chilling out.

Mummy will be working two day’s a week over the holiday’s but luckily you can come with me, but we will be going out  doing some things with the little baby I look after.

The day’s I am not working we will be having lazy mornings, and fun day’s out which will be a bit more suitable for you and your sister.

I bet you these  6 weeks will go so fast, we will be finding things to do with Dinosaurs as that is what you are learning about next term, we will also be finding some fun things to do with Space, the weather and Woodlands as that is what you will be doing in Year One.

Your year one teacher’s seem amazing you have one teacher Two day’s a week who has been teaching over 10 years and the other three day’s a newly qualified teacher, who used to be a teaching assistant. You will also having a Teaching Assistant too!

I can’t put into words how proud I am of you, you are such a caring,loving, polite and handsome young man. Your teachers say you are a pleasure to have in the classroom and you are helpful and caring too.

I am so excited for your Year one adventure, I hope it is as magical as your Reception adventure was.

Lot’s of Love

Mummy

Bluebells

We are so lucky where we live, we have so much open space right outside our door (well almost!)

We are a short drive to a few lovely Bluebell spots.

This is my all time favorite place, it is about a ten minute drive from where we are but my Nan used to live about 10 Minutes walk, until she moved to be nearer family due to old age.

The wood’s back on to a garden center, you used to be able to use the wood’s as a cut through but now as times are changing they have closed it of.

The wood’s also go across a motorway bridge and is a great spot for people walking dogs.

Walking across the motor way bridge freaks me out even though it has a very high see through fence, for some reason the though of cars and lorry’s driving under at 70 (who am I kidding more like 80-90 mph!) it’s scary… the children how ever love it and wave to the car’s!

The bluebells are over the bridge and go for a good few miles… I know the Bluebell’s have ended now but if you get a chance do pop to see some they look and smell amazing and like Bear said to Bell “If you sit still you may see a fairy?”
