In the nursery we have children from many different cultures and ethnic backgrounds, we love to learn and celebrate the wonderful rich diversity. Over the last two weeks we have been learning about and celebrating diversity through activities based on the stories ‘Handa’s Surprise’ and ‘The story of Diwali’. We used beautiful African fabrics to create our own Handa’s, explored Kenti fabrics and made some patterns based on these and tasted some yummy sugar cane too. After tasting Jamaican bun we made some spicy smelling dough to make and count our own currant buns. We very much enjoyed the Diwali story about Rama and Sita; we used salt dough to make and decorate our own diva lamps which was great fun and we can take them home to share.
You may have noticed that building work has begun on our extension. the children have been so excited by this and it has inspired lots of “Bob the builder” play. We will keep you updated on the progress as the project moves forward.
We would like to remind you that today is the last day of term for those children who are term time only.
Nursery will resume on Monday the 30th October at the usual time.
