Links with Peru

We are very fortunate to have links with Westnell Nursery School in Lima, Peru. We start the year by introducing our children to Paddington Bear (who came from Peru).  Paddington loves to go on visits/holidays with the children and their families, who draw pictures or take photographs and write a little about his visit to share with the other children.  One of our Governors, an ex-parent who lived and worked in Peru for over 20 years, supports us with this link by sharing some of her many Peruvian artefacts with the children e.g. musical instruments, Christmas decorations and hats. By looking at and talking about these items, children learn a little about people who live in a different country.  Once a year we also exchange some children’s work and activities with Westnell Nursery School.
