Day one of summer

Wow, we are being spoilt by this amazing weather!
I am being OCD, sun cream applied every few hours, unfortunately my two point blank refuse to wear sun hats.
We have been to the library, we have been to Pick your Own (again!) and we even had a treat if Macdonald’s

We love PYO, the fruit is so fresh and yummy, and its a great way for the children to learn about growing fruit and vegetables.

The library is doing a summer reading challenge, 6 books over 6 weeks. We usually read about 14 books a week as we love stories and reading.
We are obviously taking part!

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

Why we love the outdoors….

I think these photo’s sum up the outdoors to us as a family, even though I don’t think Hubby agree’s. I am very much if they are getting covered in mud yay! Hubby is “out of the mud you will get dirty!”

I think children should be able to explore all their environments, but only if they are safe to do.

Building mud pies I personally think is the main part of being a child, splashing in mud and getting their hands dirty!

Bear wasn’t into Mud and Dirt when he was tiny but now he is at school he isn’t afraid to get down and dirty with the mud!

Bell however isn’t keen but will certainly grab her wellies for a bit of splashing in the rain and a muddle puddles I blame Pepper Pig for this!

One thing I wouldn’t change as a family we don’t really plan for day’s out everything we do is usually spontaneous and last minute.

This summer we are going away, we are going to have a mini Glastonbury in the garden ,without the rain I hope, a few day trips and a few trips to National Trust sites.  What are your Plans this summer?
