Activity afternoon

Have a fun afternoon. Can you complete a puzzle, do some cooking, use your toys to create a scene from Africa or Antarctica, build an explorers jeep from junk modelling or blocks, make an African or Polar animal?

You can make a den and read a book or perhaps listen to a story. Get outside and see if you can spot any signs of spring.

 

Thank you for all your help and support .

We hope you have a lovely half term, and we hope to see you soon.
