The toddlers have spent this week learning about Scotland and St Andrew. We have made our own tartan designs, made flags with play dough and have used blue rice for mark making. We have tasted scotch broth made on the fire, oatcakes and potato scones. We shall finish the week off listening and dancing to bag pipes.

They were creating their own animals and coping their actions. This way they were developing sensory perceptions by exploring, expressing and communicate ideas thoughts and feelings.
