Last month Ruskin House Nursery took part in a variety of activities in order to celebrate Black History Month.
We celebrated by tasting African & Caribbean fruits and vegetables which concluded with a tasty soup with dumplings.
We extended children’s play in the tactile area by making dumplings with play dough .
Handa’s Surprise story was told to the children which gave further opportunity to explore different texture and taste of fruits and vegetables. We also looked at where Handa came from, the clothes she and her community wore and answer all the questions about it.
Our children have also been talking about their families and where everyone comes from as well as learning a bit about why we celebrate Black History Month.
