Muddy Marvellous Play School FUN!

Wow, wow and WOW! Yesterday was a blast – from start to finish and everything in between.

I went in to watch Play School with the school kids in Prep to Yr 4. (Hubby came too and we took our boys out of class for the big reading.) We had about 60 little Prep to Yr4 kids in the room (& 10 adults) and we were engrossed in the Play School show – with a bit of chatter and laughter at stages…

Debut with Hugh – Play School

Guess who is making his Play School debut with my muddy book. They’ll be packed to the rafters, I’m sure!

Yes – Hugh Sheridan will make his first appearance on Play School on Wednesday – alongside the hugely popular Justine Clarke.

If you’ve clicked on that Hugh Sheridan link, then scroll to Pic1 and you will even see a lovely handmade bulldozer that I’m guessing is inspired by a certain muddy story. I guess we’ll see on Wednesday… (Not long now. )

You can check out the Play School program for this week here.
