Clipboards and glittery dusters

Out came the bottle, off came the lid and within seconds the floors, surfaces, little learners and grown ups alike were covered in a layer of gold and silver glitter. 

It may not be December just yet, but it couldn't be helped, glitter was required for certain activities today and now that it is out in the open, there is no going back. So the Sunnyside grown ups officially announce,

 "Tis the season to spread glitter. 
Fa la la la la la la la la!"

Mrs Spic and Miss Span work very hard each day to keep Sunnyside School shiny and bright and they have been known to have a little weep when they find glitter trailed here there and everywhere. It clogs up their hoover and sticks to their dusters, so all the grown ups were on their hands and knees at the end of the day trying to pick it all up and directing what they couldn't under the rug!!!

A few days ago a very kind grown up donated an enormous bag of plain white shirts to Sunnyside, with the hope that the little learners would find a use for them. Today the little learners found a brilliant use for them.
Continuing with the "People who help us" theme, this week the role play area has been set up as a doctor's surgery. The over sized shirts made for the perfect doctor's white coat. The only thing was, out of twenty nine little learners, twenty eight of them wanted to be doctors, so that left one little learner who was happy to be the patient. She seemed unperturbed when she was swooped upon by twenty eight doctors all armed with clip boards, stethoscopes, hypodermic needles, beeping pagers and ringing mobile phones! With half a dozen teddies stuffed up her jumper, it wasn't too difficult to work out what the emergency was all about!
