COOSH #307

We have moved into our winter program at COOSH this term so the children have been making the most of the fading afternoon sun and playing outdoors before returning inside to our wonderfully heated hall for programmed activities. We have been fortunate enough to have the help of Lucas and Rhiannon to promote children’s outdoor physical play, enhancing ball skills, coordination and team cooperation. We are also learning some new indoor sports with recently purchased sets of croquet and bocce and our sock wrestling competitions have proved as popular as ever!


Our weekly cooking activities have provided winter warming afternoon teas with the children learning how to make fruit crumbles, Mexican nachos and mini muffin pizzas. Using the COOSH recipe book children become familiar with weights and measures preparing the ingredients and learn to follow instructions reading the method. 

Science experiments have taught the children how to make their own paper and milk shapes. Crafting jewellery, weaving leaves, and folding origami have helped develop children’s dexterity and fine motor skills. Dress ups are popular and we would like to thank the community for their donations of make-up, clothes and accessories, providing the children with new and varied articles to choose from in their play.

To add to our collection of resources and equipment for the children we are planning our annual fundraiser – a cake bake sale and suitcase/table top sale in the Clunes park. Details will follow but please save the date of Saturday 5th September
