Handa’s Surprise

The Nursery children had a very busy week learning all about different countries. We spent a very busy Monday learning about France. We looked closely at The Eiffel Tower and then the children tried hard to paint their own, we had lots of fun learning to say ‘hello’ in French. I wonder if anyone can remember?
We shared the story ‘Handa’s Surprise by Eileen Browne. In the story Handa visits her friend Akeyo and takes a basket of seven different fruits, along the way some very cheeky animals took the fruit from the basket. Can you remember any of the animals? Following the story we tasted a selection of fruits from the story, as you will see from the childrens faces on the photos some were not very popular!
We looked at the Indian flag and tasted a variety of foods, including naan bread, poppadum, mango chutney and cucumber and mint dip.
Buongiorno Thursday! We spent the day learning about Italy and making our very own pizzas! an activity the children thoroughly enjoyed, of course the best part was eating it once it was cooked.
We hope you enjoy looking at our photos and as always would love to hear what you children had to say about our very busy week.

    Lucy especially enjoyed the “poppydums” as she called them. She said Bonjour to me this morning too.

    How lovely to see. I was especially impressed with the children’s language skills. Mrs Twynham will be very much looking forward to meeting our boys and girls from EYFS in a year or two’s time, since they already know so many other words from different countries.
