Wildflower and Play morning

Thank you to all who joined us on the field this weekend for some relaxing family fun in the sun.

We planted a wildlfower labyrinth (seeds donated by Grow Wild and SeedBalls), the Play Beach and Dengineering Zone were open, plus slackline, bubbles, clay craft and #WottonRocks!

Hot chocolate and biscuits were donated by Tesco Superstore Cam.

Here are some photos of the event. The next community play event will be the Big Build on Saturday 9th June with Woodland Tribe.


Daffodil Labyrinth

The daffodil labyrinth was planted last term by children in Outdoor Club and Ignite Club, plus helpers from Open the Book, Reverend Morag, and special guest Jane Grey Wallis (see Here for previous article and photos).

Slowly the shoots began to appear and the shape of the labyrinth was revealed. Labyrinths are special spaces with designs that encourage people to take a 'thinking walk' allowing moments of peace and calm in nature with time for reflection.

Here is the labyrinth in action. We are planning to now use the same shape for our wildflower seeds on another part of the school field.

We are creative!

DSC02360Last term's core school value was CREATIVITY!

In a Play Assembly we discussed why creativity is important in the playground and thought about how creative play made us feel.

The Blue Coat Play Journalists ventured out across our play spaces to capture evidence of creativity in play. Here is a slideshow of some of the photos taken.


Creating places for play

P3150086New willow dens have been planted on the school field. The willow was cut from within the school grounds so was free natural resource for us to work with.
A big thank you to Outdoor Club members and Mr Brooks for their hard work in creating interesting places for all Blue Coat pupils to relax and play in.
