Play Day - using water
A very small paddling pool, some plastic bottles, a boat and corks was used a lot! Many pupils enjoyed filling the plastic bottles and then trying to empty them as quickly as possible. Some played with the boat and tried to sink it with the corks!
This was very popular and over 150 pupils (one of the P7s counted!) wanted to sit behind the tarp and get water sprayed towards them. In the morning the tarp was tied up so it was like a flat roof and water was poured on top but in the afternoon the P7s tried it this way.
Next time we will set up more opportunities for water play.
