This seaside display was made by a family learning class with help from the learning mentor. The children were all under four and attend the school nursery.
I am sure that displays like this are helpful in several ways:
- Making the display provides a shape and purpose for the family learning sessions
- The work gives lots of opportunities for speaking and listening skills to be practised
- Encourages a sense of pride and achievement.
- It promotes a sense of ownership in both the parents and the children
There are more, I’m sure. Seeing this I couldn’t help but think how much better it was than having the sort of Disney cartoon murals you sometimes see in nurseries and creches.
