Olympics fever has arrived at Allsorts. The children have been more active than ever, if that is possible, keeping warm as the rains threatened to wash summer away before it even began. So far the children have excelled in the ancient sports of Roly Poly, Star Jumps and of course the premier event, after the 100 metres sprint, balancing on a beam. They also asked for some practice sessions on running in preparation for their own sports day. Again the kids were hard at work, getting their last minute training in for egg and spoon and the sack races, throwing the bean bag and jumping hoops. I am exhausted just writing all that down but rest assured the kids had plenty of vim left to have made it a memorable day for all involved.
The other great British occasion of course was the Jubilee. The children made flags, crowns and their own bunting, as well as decorating cakes for a Jubilee Tea Party. Meanwhile the home corner was turned into a ‘Palace’ with the kids having a great time dressing up as Queens, Kings and Century Guards and bossing the rest of us around. Each child also received a coin from Allsorts to celebrate the occasion..
Many of you may have heard tell of the mythical “Giant of Brightwell”. Well, it seems he may not be a myth after all. If you go into Preschool and look very carefully you will see the big green monster looming over you. This is the children’s entry for the art competition to be displayed at the Cornerstone in Didcot. The giant has been the focus of the arts and crafts this term and aside from making the monster we have also made recordings of the children giving their own first-hand accounts of encounters with this mysterious colossus.
Finally, in spite of the rain, Allsorts have been out and about on a farm. They visited the farm in Mackney where they rode on tractors and had a great time seeing the cows with their calves. A big thank you to Patricia who showed them around. When they got back the children made their own cows, pigs and sheep to go on the display board. The next day some of the animals were missing and the giant had a big grin on his face.
