Speaking of Balloons...

Hi again,
This week the children began a paper mache project.
We are in the process of creating some giant bugs to act as visual reminders for strategies we can draw on when people or situations are 'bugging us!'
Blowing up the balloons with a pump was a lot of fun and gave us all a good work out.

The activity has also been great for developing patience, team work, sustained concentration and a host of maths skills to do with measuring, such as length, width, volume, capacity and estimation. We have made a great start on our bugs thanks to the support of our Inner Wheel volunteers, Val and Barb.
