Our after school club have been having fun.
At the Junior club this week the children have been very keen to make their own play dough!
The children took an active role in this, sourcing and then measuring out the ingredients.
They cooked it in the microwave, and then cooled. They used a range of tools to manipulate and explore the play dough. It was a lovely activity which brought many children together.
The children at our Infant Hoots Afterschool Club have enjoyed making their very own delicious vegetable stir fry in celebration of the Chinese New Year. The children were able to take appropriate risks, using a knife to slice the vegetables and then stirring the mix as it cooked on the stove top.
They used their senses to explore this activity in a wide variety of ways, smelling the different ingredients as well as tasting them too.
The end product looked absolutely wonderful.
