Soup Day.

Colour mixing

We did circle in the top meadow today..

"Children, children come to the circle
Time to dance and time to sing,
Children, children come to the circle
Come and join our fairy ring!

....and the birds flying free,

Good Morning to you, good morning to me.

"Five fat peas in a pea pod pressed
One grew, two grew, so did all the rest
They grew and they grew
and they did not stop......
