Soggy exploring with The Byes Pre-school
Wet weather failed to dampen spirits as more than 50 children enjoyed scavenging, sculpting and more in the award-winning Sidford Wildlife Garden this half term.
The Byes Pre-school committee was on hand with hot chocolate and Valentine’s Day biscuits to keep the busy nature explorers warm while they braved the cold and rain to get creative outdoors on Tuesday, February 14.
The children threaded cereal bird feeders, created mud sculptures, decorated a wooden necklace, built dens, explored the garden and went on a scavenger hunt, before getting thoroughly soaked in the digging area.
Play leader Catherine Harmson said: “It was wonderful to be able to share some of the lovely outdoor activities we regularly plan for our pre-school children. We place a strong focus on outdoor learning at The Byes, so to see so many children happily engaged in their chosen activities - despite the rain - was a true testament to what we do.”
