Today has been a very exciting day, Xispa had a baby!
But before we got to see the new baby we went to the vegetable garden. Firstly, we planted some onions, Gerard and Aneu planted them really quickly! After, we had to water them to ensure they grow really big, Aliex and Ivan were really helpful and helped water them. Ivan also used the hose to water all of the garlic, as there are now lots of plants and we need some extra help! We then looked at the beans to see how big they’re getting and they’re almost ready to be picked.
We then went to see the donkeys, ponies and chickens! Where all the new children got to meet them for the first time and even got to ride Perla. Perla was very good and let all the children ride her. Judit, Sara and Alex rode Estrella too! Jared, Jordi, Txell and Aneu went and collected the eggs, and place them in the basket! There were lots and lots of eggs today, which meant we were able to make a yummy cake later in the day.
It was finally time to go and meet the new arrival here at Casa Nostra! All the children were so excited to go and meet the baby goat! The children were very good at being quiet so we didn’t scare the mother or baby. They were all very lucky and were able to stroke the baby, he was very soft. Judit even managed to hold the baby. They children enjoyed watching the baby learn to walk.
After breakfast it was time to start the arts and crafts activity, we made a rocket window! The children had to paint the paper black to look like sky. Then we coloured in a planet, rocket, astronaut and star. Bier was very good at colouring! After the creations were finished, it looked like we were looking out to space. Judit used glitter, to make it look like moon dust. It looked excellent!
Then it was time to make our yummy space cookies. The children helped put all the ingredients in the thermomix, then it was time to mix it. They then moulded the dough into a circle, some of the children even had a taste of the dough! Txell and Bruna thought it was very yummy!
It was time to sing some songs and read a book! We read ‘Red Rocket Rainbow Jelly’ and the children really enjoyed reading along. After, Siobhan played the guitar while the children were singing along. Txell even helped turn the pages, so the children were able to read the words and sing along. The children especially enjoyed singing ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’, they sang it really loud.
In the afternoon, we made some rockets out of toilet roll! The children painted, cut and stuck all the materials until they made their rocket. After, we made a cake and the children enjoyed counting the ingredients.
After we played a game in the garden it was time to eat our cake. It was a nice way to end the day!
