Purple Up Day

Today we all wore purple and did different activities to celebrate the military children at Merry Hill.

We used this time to discuss, be active and be creative.

We discussed that the flower of the military child is a dandelion because dandelions put down roots anywhere they go. We were also so lucky to be visited by Henry and Alex who are in the Armed Forces and did some activities with us.

In Year One we decorated biscuits with purple icing and hundreds and thousands. We talked about the act of spreading and mixing which would be needed for this activity.


How you can help at home:

Discuss the importance of different jobs and how we need all sorts of different people, with different strengths and weaknesses to all work together in our country. Can you interview someone in your local  community about their job?
