The Reception children enjoyed a workshop at the National Children’s Book Centre just down the hill at the Ouseburn. We looked around the exhibition called Time for Bed with Tom our guide before taking part in a workshop based on a book we had read at school called Anna Hibiscus Song. It is a book based in Africa and follows a little girl as she asks all her family about different things that make them feel happy. One thing her Aunties say is that they like to ‘pound yam’. The children all had a turn at pretending to ‘pound yam’ as we sang an African working song.
It was a long walk for little legs all the way to the Ouseburn and back but the children were a credit to the school on the journey and whilst they were there. Thank you to the parents who helped us encourage the children throughout the morning.
