Foundation classes at Stowford School were teaming with well known and well loved characters from nursery rhymes, as they celebrated a “Once Upon a Rhyme” day.
During the day all the children could earn a special certificate if they could recite a nursery rhyme. Other exciting activities included constructing hickory dickory clocks, creating musical shakers to accompany their rendition of The Grand Old Duke of York and making their very own incy wincy spiders. There was plenty of baking too as the children had the opportunity to make story themed biscuits and some of the Queen of Heart’s jam tarts.
Foundation teaching assistant, Karen Freeland, said, “The children had a fantastic time and, thanks to all our wonderful parent volunteers, they were able to do a really amazing range of activities. They really enjoyed themselves, as did the staff- it is not often that you have the opportunity to make tarts with the gingerbread man and the big bad wolf on the same day!”
