Free Flow Christmas Singalongs 9&10 December 2019

🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

We hope you enjoyed our first Free-Flow Sing Along… we are unspeakably proud of our children. They are only three and four and to go up on stage in front of all their mummies/daddies/grandmas and grandads takes courage and they rose to the challenge admirably. They sang songs with great gusto and hopefully you all feel that little bit more Christmassy than you did before?!

Well done, you are all officially SUPER⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️S!!!!!

Thank you all for coming 💖💕💖🎄🎄🎄xxxx

One down and one to go today!

Thackray Medical Museum Ambulance visits – 12.9.19

An exciting morning today…..the ambulance from the Thackray medical museum came to visit us. We loved exploring the inside……driving it, sitting in the big chairs in the back, looking at all the equipment and trying on uniforms etc. Charlotte and Leah also set up lots of little beds with poorly teddies to look after….lots of medicine was administered, LOTS of plasters were applied ans lots of heartbeats were checked. What a fab morning. Thankyou Charlotte and Leah for bringing your ambulance and generally being FAB with our children.

18th July 2019 – Our annual leavers trip!

Sian and the free flow staff team took this years school leavers to Swithens farm as a treat! We had a fantastic day. We had an exciting bus journey there and then a snack, before we met up with our guide ‘Angela’. She gave each child a box of carrots to feed the animals on our tour. We could feed cows, pigs, donkeys, goats, sheep, alpacas and llamas. We learned to feed with a flat hand…and that cows were dribbly!!! We also had a tractor ride, bottle fed lambs, brushed guinea pigs and rabbits, watched the meerkats eat an egg, played in the play areas and had a picnic lunch. We spent our pennies in the shop too before another exciting bus trip back to nursery for our well earned tuna pasta bake!!

16th July 2019 – ‘Movable Beasts’ visit!!!!

One of our parents kindly gifted a ‘Movable Beasts’ voucher which they had won…..so Gary brought us some creatures to show us. We did this in 3 groups…. firstly was our youngest children downstairs, then the two year olds and then our eldest Free Flow children. We met; millipedes, madagascan hissing cockroaches, giant albino land snails, stick insects (two varieties), sun beetles, flat rock scorpions, and a  brazilian white knee tarantula called Geordie. We got to look at the scorpion and the tarantula as they were too nippy or fast! but we got the hands on experience with everything else….the millipedes were definitely the favourites!!! 

Woodlesford in bloom again!!!!

Our lovely Big Megan made up a song to sing to the judges, again using a song that the children love at the moment………..George Ezra ‘Shotgun’. The children had spent a long time painting flowers to make Jollies look super pretty, and then they sang their song to the judges! Top marks!

Our spontaneous free flow wedding!!

So at lunchtime today ‘G’ was talking about her Aunties wedding, when another child invited himself along. I said that you can’t just invite yourself to some bodies wedding if you don’t know them! He said ‘well that’s ok cos I’m going to get married and everyone can come!’. I asked who he was marrying…….’G and it’s going to be today!!’………..so we had 2 hours to plan a wedding!!!
All the boys came for a top hat fitting (every boy got very excited about these special hats and couldn’t wait to have one made!!!). I made paper flowers to decorate a chosen hat each for the girls. We made a bouquet, pipe cleaner rings and even a ‘collar’ for Becky the vicar!! All he wanted to know was what we were having for the wedding meal!!! We had cracker canapés and picnic tea!!
We had the ceremony ‘on the lawn’ and threw birdseed confetti. The bride threw to bouquet which was caught by lucky ‘C’, first dance was ‘Shotgun!’ of course and then we boogied the afternoon away with a cheesy disco!!!!!
