Today we were at the SNC and what a fun time we had.

We decided to hold our very own "Dingle Olympics"

We had races, hoop shooting, gymnastics, dance and hula hooping and the children also got involved in planting up the strawberry patch.

Tiber Square Fun Day

Today was our last family fun day at Tiber Square and what a beautiful day it was.

The activities included picture printing , puzzles , word searches, colouring in. All the children from The Greenhouse came over to get their face painted and had a healthy lunch.

The parents also got a chance to to talk to us about growing at home and picked up a free herb plant.

It was great to see everyone and we look forward to seeing everyone at the next half term.
