The blazing sunshine and scorching temperatures this week have certainly marked the arrival of Summer! The children have enjoyed shady, morning, lakeside walks, splashing in our water table, water painting, ice lollies in the garden and fun ice lolly crafts.
We always ensure in high temperatures that we have our sunhats and suncream on. We stay out of the sun during the hottest part of the day and ensure that we stay hydrated.
What amazing weather we have had this week! We have enjoyed visits to the park, trips to feed the ducks and playtime in the garden all to the backdrop of glorious bright, blue skies. Our sunflowers are now in full bloom, just as we are seeing our first conkers falling and a change in the colour of the leaves, all in time to say goodbye Summer!
According to reports we are due a heatwave next week! Children cannot control their body temperature as efficiently as adults during hot weather and so are more susceptible to heat related illnesses. I have a “heatwave plan” in place and will be taking measures to keep children cool and safe during the hot spell.
Here at Early Years and Beyond we are “All weather walkers”. With the unpredictability of the British Weather that can mean raging gales on the school run one day and basking in the sunshine the next! On colder, wetter days we are thankful school is just a 5 minute walk away!
