African Week

This week at our Burton Latimer nursery we are discovering Africa and the Caribbean!

During the week we will be carrying out different activities such as exotic fruit tasting, Batik painting and African dancing. We will also be able to look at tribal fabrics and prints and talk about the animals and birds.

We are delighted that on Thursday (28th September) we will be joined by Bemma Akyeampong (African Ark) who will be providing quality African and Caribbean experiences for the children. Bemma orginates from Ghana on the West Coast of Africa and will be teaching us to dance, to share Caribbean fruits and to create Batik work. We will also be able to share African and Caribbean stories. I think that this is going to be a really exciting week and I know that the staff are really looking forward to it!!!
