August is always a very sad month as we say goodbye to children who will be leaving to start school… The annual School Leaver’s party was a huge success as we celebrated the end of a Monkey Puzzle journey for the eldest children. During the party, the children sang and danced and enjoyed party games such as pass the parcel and musical bumps! We had a very special visitor who made amazing balloon sculptures for each child and face painting throughout the afternoon. The room was dressed with homemade decorations as everyone sat together for a delicious party tea and enjoyed a serving from our special ice cream parlour. The School Leaver’s released red balloons into the sky as we clapped and cheered to say goodbye!
Also this month, Pink Monkeys have been developing their physical skills using a range of equipment and resources. They enjoy Monkeynastix group every week and are always very excited to see Ryan. With him, he brings a variety of apparatus which provides excellent climbing opportunities and a chance for the children to learn new ways to move their bodies safely.
