Our Pre School children have been enjoying the story of Jack and the Beanstalk today and that has made our creative juices flow so we used very large paper to create a beanstalk using paint and collage materials (photographs have been added to Facebook.) Our nusery beans are growing well and the children are watering them daily. Our younger children have been hunting for bugs in the garden and using the drain pipes to pour water down and then getting very wet feet! We love our wellies!

I hope everyone enjoyed their bank holiday weekend – here comes the rain!

What a wet day we have had at Hillcrest but dont worry there is always lots of interesting and fun things to do! Our big children have enjoyed the rain by splashing in puddles wearing our favourite wellies.  Our toddlers got very messy exploring different textures and having fun in the sand pit (with lots of new sand added). Our babies prefered to stay indoors and made brillant paintings and explored the treasure baskets.
