Yesterday I spent a lovely Morning at Balhousie Primary School, working with the P1's & P2's. The children just loved the book and there is already a waiting list to use this through their lending library. I had already copied pictures of potatoes and carrots, so didn't claim the download but instead wish to share you some of the amazing Super-Veg Heroes that they created. I was really inspired on how well the kids took to the activities and just loved hearing all the adventures that they had imagined up for their own Vegetable Heroes and the names were just fantastic. Here is a just a few of them below, including the "Super Kah-Rott-Eee" the Ninja Warrior "St. Pud-u-La" and the arch villain "Potato Peel"! It would have been nice to have been able to give a prize for the best creations, but instead the school are asking each child to great an adventure story for their Characters over the next week and the winners from each of the 2 classes with be receiving extra Golden Time points and have their story read out at the end of term assembly.
Last Wednesday I once again visited the Studio at Upper Springland. I am involved with the cookery group who are working to created a number of recipient by pictures projects. This blocks theme is Fish & Seafood and where better to find our recipie than Asda's 50th celebration magazine? The service users added there own twist and the results were delicious.
Today was my 2nd visit supporting the S.H.I.P and SPLASH play scheme. The children receiving the supported respite care were taken to the Glasgow Science Center.
On Sunday our Gsm James Carchrie and I boosted our Cash for Kids fundraising with a special sale and Tombola.... With a 6am start it was a long day but well worth the effort.
Just finished my 1st day of the S.H.I.P and SPLASH play scheme that is part funded by our stores fundraising. 30 children with special and/or support needs attended - each with 1 or 2 volunteers assigned to them. Today we visited Active Kids in Stanley with the over 12's. Looking forward to Thursday when it is the under 12's group who will be visiting the Glasgow Science Centre.
