National Children's Day 2015

DSCN5982This Sunday 17th May is National Children's Day. The theme this year is 'The Science and Magic of Play'. The focus on the importance of play mirrors Blue Coat's own plans and priorities, so we are joining in the celebrations.

Firsly, children in Class Hannu took part in a special project combining the science of growing with the creation of a new outdoor den space. Runner beans, climbing French beans and edible flowers called nasturtiums have all been planted and grown with care by the children. The young plants have now all been planted outside on a teepee frame, ready to scramble up the poles to create a leafy den.

Secondly, we will be celebrating play in the field this weekend as part of the annual Blue Coat May Fayre. The fayre is organised by the PTA and runs from 11.30am - 2.30pm on Saturday 16th May. An area of the field will be dedicated to play. You can create your own giant marble run from scrap, get hula hooping with your friends, or create your own Hawaiian skirt from recycled materials.
