This week, both P2 classes went on a trip to Quality Time in Banbridge. We had such an amazing time. As soon as we arrived we were warmly greeted by Natasha, the owner of Quality Time and we knew we were in for an exciting morning.
Firstly, we entered the wonderful outdoor play area and our lovely dry morning suddenly turned into a Winter wonderland. Can you believe that we had snow in June? (see pictures). Next we went into 2 groups and half of the class were brought into the workshop room while the other half of the class got to explore and use their imaginations around the topic of pirates and water in the indoor/outdoor area.
During the workshop the children had hands on experience playing at a number of stations such as investigating ice, spraying clouds with coloured water, mixing primary colours to make secondary colours, weighing, small world pirate play, marbling etc. We even got to explore live tadpoles. It was absolutely wonderful as the pictures show. Meanwhile in the main area; the boys and girls enjoyed playing in the role play area which had been transformed into a hospital. They also got to explore more in the topic of water by brushing pictures of teeth with toothpaste, washing babies in the bath, playing in the outdoor kitchen etc. They were also treated to a beautiful, healthy snack of fruit, cheese, breadsticks, pancakes, water or milk.
If you haven’t visited this hidden gem, it is a must, you will not be disappointed.
