"Welcome" Banners Primary School

I have just spent a very happy 2 days working with Kettles Yard  at the the Grove Primary School in Arbury, Cambridge.  We made "Welcome" and "Hello" banners in different languages to hang in the new reception area of the school.

The best part of the project was the children volunteering their knowledge and sharing the words they knew.  Other children popped in from the playground and from their classrooms to help out with different languages and spellings and texts, so there was a lot of communication and discussion. And a lot of discussion about, and pride in the different nationalities of the chidren and their parents.

Swavesay festival

Printing bags at Swavesey Festival..........great theme:  "Childhood Sweets".  Ellen from START  did a guess "how many sweets are in the jar" competition and we printed these great bags with an old fashioned sweety theme.  Good nostalgic childhood memories for me.

And the same sort of project a couple of weeks ago at Sawston
