Quite a bit of snow last Sunday evening meant that the children who stay on Monday afternoons were treated to a long play session in the snow in the churchyard. A snow person was built, which everybody had a hand in. The children practised their snow building skills, collecting handfuls and armfuls of snow to “make it bigger and bigger”. Hide and Seek in the snow was a lot of fun, as was forming snow angels by lying on the floor and moving hands and legs. Then we had a daffodil hunt, looking for the new shoots of distinctive leaves rising up.
