Gloop, Glorious Gloop :-)

DSCF3080 DSCF3081 DSCF3077

We have had buckets of fun playing with a huge tray of gloop today.

It drips off your fingers, you can make tracks in it, write your name and watch it disappear just like magic and you can do much, much more.

Why not try it at home, it’s great fun. All you need is a tray, cornflour, water, a tablecloth and a sink for washing those gloopy hands. Just add a little bit of water to the cornflour until you have a gloopy consistency. For that extra bit of adventure you can add food colouring, glitter or both !, try experimenting :-)

What a fun Thursday we have had. We have been gardening, shopping, painting, climbing,  horse riding AND celebrating a special birthday ! ! .

We have lovely things to buy in our shop; you can buy anything from oriental food, tea bags, washing liquid and much, much more. We have two fabulous tills that ping and ding to the sound of little fingers working hard.

It’s all in a fun day at Hillcrest :-)

What a wonderful day we have shared here in Pre-school today :-). We have each enjoyed preparing our own delicious sandwiches for tea. Wholemeal bread and Jam was the clear favourite and for that extra bit of fun we cut our sandwiches into heart shapes :-) there wasn’t a single one left after tea  !!

Our Pre-schoolers have been very busy preparing their Broad Bean seeds for planting. First they chose their very own special bean together with a transparent cup. Sarah then showed each child how to roll up a paper towel so that it would fit into their cup. When each child had done this they carefully placed their seed between the paper towel and the outer of the cup. After pouring just a little water into the cup they placed it onto the windowsill so that they can watch it grow day by day :-). Who knows? we just might have our very own enormous beanstalk just like Jack !
